When creating the VM, do not mark it as RHEL/CentOS, just create a
standard VM and then install it via the ISO. VMWare Player and
now-no-longer-supported Server etc. have some "user-friendly" features
which assumes things which you don't need.

Once the OS is installed, install the VMware tools separately.
