I am running a vmware environment (Version 4 unfortunately) which requires me to use a bios rom file in order to run server 2012. I upload it to the root folder of the VM after creation, before boot and change some config lines.
bios440.filename = bios.440.rom mce.enable = TRUE cpuid.hypervisor.v0 = FALSE vmGenCounter.enable = FALSE
That works perfectly until I clone the VM or try and deploy a template. The file is not copied.
Is there any way to tell vmware that the file needs to be copied with the VM when cloning or deploying from template?
bios440.filename =[ESX-ISO (SAN1)] ROMs/bios.440.rom
