I am trying to launch "cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.4.2-0-vmware" on VM (VMware-player-5.0.4-1945795) but no luck. nothing is hapening.
I have installed 'VMware-player-5.0.4-1945795' in Windows 7 Enterprise with 8 GB RAM
Unzip 'cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.4.2-0-vmware' file using 7zip or winzip as well
open cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.4.2-0-vmware files from VM Player.
Clicked on 'Play Virtual Machine'.
Nothing is coming on screen. uanable to proceed further.
Could you please help as i am new to VMs also I read couple of threads here saying that may be we need to change in BIOS settings. I don't know how to change.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Enabling virtualization in a PC is usually a step you take during boot up. As your system boots up, it will flash a message telling you to press a key (e.g. F1, F2, escape) to configure BIOS settings. If you have never run a VM on your laptop before, you will likely have to take this step.
The BIOS settings that must be enabled for VT-x support vary depending on the system vendor. Here is a VMware knowledge base article that may help: http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1003944 and here is another good reference that provides information specific to certain brands: http://amiduos.com/support/knowledge-base/article/enabling-virtualization-in-bios

When I unzip 'cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.8.0-0-vmware' file using 7zip or winzip, I received data error.
I've downloaded the VM twice with no interruption.
Any suggestion what could be wrong?

We HIGHLY recommend that you install a “Download Manager” extension to your web browser and utilize that to manage the download of the Quickstart VM as it is a VERY large file and can easily get corrupted during download due to connectivity issues.
If this doesn't solve your issue I suggest starting a new thread with a complete description of your setup and steps taken to receive the error.
