When you create a new virtual machine, provide a unique name for the virtual machine to distinguish it from existing virtual machines on the host you are managing. After you select a guest operating system, the wizard provides the appropriate defaults for the operating system installation.

The following procedure applies if you want to create a new virtual machine.


Enter a name for your virtual machine.


Select the virtual machine compatibility from the Compatibility drop-down menu.


Select the guest operating system family from the Guest OS family drop-down menu.

Click Next.
