On this page http://hortonworks.com/products/sandbox-instructions/ it says
Minimum System Requirements:
– Computer capable of running Oracle VirtualBox 4.2 or higher; VMware Fusion 5.0 or higher; VMware Player 5.0 or higher
– Minimum 4GB of RAM, 8GB recommended
I have 8GB and VMware player 5.0.1 installed on Windows 7 (64bit).
When I double click the .ovm I get an error message dialog from the VMware player about an invalid option ‘t’.
Because the .ovm is really an archive I “unzipped” it and double clicked the .ovf file in there. Same error.
Finally I simply created a new virtual machine and attached the disk file.
Now this thing loads the bootloader and then doesn’t continue.
Where can I find the howto on how to make this work?
