RHEL 5 install hanging on AHCI driver

Posted on


I am attempting to create a RHEL 5 VM utilizing the iso images I downloaded from Linux. When I specify the Disk 1 iso for the CD drive and click Install to begin the process, the RHEL 5 installation hangs on "Loading AHCI driver." during the setup process. Im not sure if there is something I need to change in the RHEL 5 software settings, the VM hardware settings, or the VMware 12 settings.

Any help to be able to move forward would be greatly appreciated!
