VMware vSphere Labs – Foundations – Installing VMware Workstation 8 Custom

This video simply depicts how to install VMware workstation 8. It’s nothing really advanced it just covers a more thoughtful way of install VMware workstation 8.

The only thing really important to note is that VMware Workstation 8 installs windows services as part of the installation. What this means is that if you do install it on a separate drive it will need to be a part of a back up in order to do a full system restore. Meaning that you will have to do an image of that other drive. When using windows 7 of course. Remember this is a simple approach and may not cover as deep as you may want it too.
