Installing in VMWare Workstation Player, the display is so small that it makes it impossible to reply to the multiple installation screens. There should the option to start as a live session, then enlarge the display resolution and then start the installation.
In VirtualBox, when poiting to the ISO (checksum verified), and trying to start this ISO file, I got the error: "FATAL: No bootable media found! System halted". It is the same media that started installation in VMWare, without errors, just the small screen.
I have many linux distros installed in both VMWare and VirtualBox all running without problems.
