    Hi,
    trying to run the eeepc vmx will obviously fail because the vmdk file cannot be found. the sdk documentation talks of a script called "vmware-convert", but it obviously assumes that you are running linux? so how can I convert the ISO file into VMDK, or maybe there is another trick I could use to get the eeepc running on my VMWARE on Windows?
    Thanks,
    Andres

      Yes, you have to run Linux, i.e., install the SDK to get that tool.
