    I'm having big troubles installing Vista on a machine with VMware Workstation.

    When I get to the point were I should choose where to install, I get a message to "Please restart your computer and verify that your disks are enabled in BIOS".

    I have done that, but when I restart the installation in VMware the same message pops up again.

    Can I anyone help me out here? :)
