Stop VMWare booting via network when creating a new VM
I am trying to add another virtual PC using WMWare Workstation 7.0. I have been running a virtual machine with XP on for some months now, which installed fine from installer disk.
I have now come to add another virtual machine using both the installer disc and from ISO and each time, once I have set up the virtual machine and it then reboots, it is trying to boot using PXE and searching for a DHCP response. I have not chosen it to do this and simply want it to install from disc as it did originally.
This occurs with all OS's, all discs are know good working discs as are the ISO images.
I have gone into the BIOS of the WM and set the boot options to CD Rom first and network boot last, however this has made no difference, I cannot find an option to disable/remove the option for network boot.
I have tried this both with the Vm's network card connected and disconnected and do have it set as a 'bridged' connection in order to replicate the physical network state.
I have uploaded a video to youtube to show what happens, this can be seen here -

How can I stop this trying to boot from the network and just use the damm disc?
