-VMware products will create a SCSI virtual hard drive for a Linux VM when using the new VM wizard. This controller is not recognized by the Tiny Core Linux kernel. Depending on the VMware product and version there may or may not be a 'Virtual Device Node' setting available in the 'New Virtual Machine Wizard'. If this cannot be selected when the hard disk is created, it is necessary to delete it and create a new one before powering on the virtual machine. The procedure for this depends again on the product and version. For some, you must go to 'Edit virtual machine settings' from the Virtual Machine page/tab.  For others, you can click the SCSI drive drop down, then remove then 'Add Hardware' and add a new hard disk. You may reuse the virtual disk file created earlier. If available, the easiest configuration is to use the SATA adapter, otherwise choose IDE.+VMware products will create a SCSI virtual hard drive for a Linux VM when using the new VM wizard.
