Hello.

Recently I tried to install Whistler 2223, but it completely hung up at "Setup is starting Windows 2000". I tried EVERYTHING - setting the hard drive to SCSI, back to IDE, changing system type from XP Professional to 2000 Professional, pressing F5 and selecting "Standard PC" - nothing. It still hangs.

I'm using VMware Player.

Can someone help me?

Make sure that every kind of hardware virtualization technology is disabled. You can check it from the virtual machine's properties. Also, I don't know which version of VMware Player you are using, but you could try lowering the virtual machine's hardware compatibility.

The only hardware virtualization technology or at least something what is related to it which I found in VM properties was acceleration of 3D graphics. I disabled it - no luck. Also, I'm using VMware Player 15. I searched the entire VM settings, but couldn't find anything about hardware or version compatibility.

I tried both trying to disable the ACPI at HAL menu and at the VM's .VMX file - nothing.

Use the Super 7 machine in PCem. I was going to say VPC 2007 but you're probably on 64-bit, so you cant install it.

OP wants to use Player, so let him.

You are using a version too new.
Start with 3.1.4 and work your way up.

Also, set this in the BIOS:

Press escape as soon as the bios splash screen comes up, scroll down to "Enter Setup" and press enter.

I set this up by setting the guest to Windows 2000 Professional with everything on default settings. AKA just kept clicking "next."
I also did not F5 and change the machine type in Whistler setup. I just let it run.

And wait about a minute for the kernel to detect hardware during the "Setup is starting Windows 2000."

I also had this
Code:
acpi.present = "FALSE"

at the bottom of my .vmx file.

3.1.4 didn't work on my Windows 10. The earliest version I could get to work was 6.0, and it just randomly rebooted while "Setup is starting Windows 2000". Going to install it on PCem.

Use the Super 7 with a Mobile Pentium MMX 300, 512MB RAM and 10GB HDD on PCem 15.
Here are the roms: https://github.com/BaRRaKudaRain/PCem-ROMs

I tried to install this on PCem. It's saying "Windows failed to install product catalogs".

Set the BIOS date, also dont forget to disable time syncing in the VM settings.

It was already there. I rechecked - it's still there.

You will need to restart setup all over again after you set bios date.
