Re: Cannot boot VM - stuck at EFI Shell

first question, what OS are you trying to install as the guest?
Secondly, do a verbose listing using hpvmstatus, and post
Third point, is there media in the DVD drive?
My house is the bank's, my money the wife's, But my opinions belong to me, not HP!

Thanks Melvyn, yes there was media, but it was an Application DVD, not an install DVD>
