Thank you very much for your reply . Please be informed that :
-Boot device priority is ok , as I checked it on BIOS CMOS
- CD drive is ok , as it can read other CDs
- Windows installation CD is ok , as it can be installed on other platforms
I tried to install VirtualBox/VMWare on my CentOS but it didn't get through
. I don't know exactly if it comes from wrong repository on my CentOS or it
comes from the fact that I am trying from IRAN and it is prohibited for my
country domain. Please help me and show me other alternatives.
