Manually edit the copydrivers.ini
and put in
VMware Virtual Platform=vmware (you can have the folder named anything you want, as long as the WMI call is a match it will point to the subfolder of your choosing)
that is what i have in mine and works fine for me
another note - if your doing HII with vmware, by default scsi controllers are enabled when you create new VMs. you have to manually edit the .vmx file to get your IDE hard drives to boot.
change the TRUE to FALSE on this line...
scsi0.present = "FALSE"
Modifying the Copydrivers.ini was all that I had to do. Worked like a charm. Thank you.
