VMware is a leading provider of virtualization software that allows you to run multiple operating systems on a single physical machine. With VMware, you can create, manage, and test virtual machines that emulate real hardware and software. You can also use VMware to deploy your applications across different clouds and platforms.


Running Red Hat Linux on VMware gives you several advantages, such as:


  • You can test Red Hat Linux without affecting your main operating system or data.



  • You can easily switch between different versions and configurations of Red Hat Linux.



  • You can take snapshots and backups of your virtual machines and restore them in case of any problems.



  • You can leverage the features and tools of VMware to optimize the performance and security of your virtual machines.



  • You can access your virtual machines from anywhere using remote desktop or web browser.



In this article, we will show you how to download and install Red Hat Linux on VMware in a few simple steps. We will use VMware Workstation Pro as an example, but you can also use VMware Workstation Player or any other VMware product that supports creating virtual machines. We will also use Red Hat Enterprise Linux as an example, but you can also use any other variant of Red Hat Linux, such as Fedora or CentOS.


Requirements




Before you start, make sure you have the following requirements:


  • A computer with enough RAM, disk space, and CPU power to run both your host operating system and your guest operating system. The minimum requirements for Red Hat Linux are 2 GB of RAM, 20 GB of disk space, and a 64-bit processor. The recommended requirements are 4 GB of RAM, 40 GB of disk space, and a dual-core processor.



  • A VMware Workstation Pro or Player license. You can download a free trial version from .



  • A Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription or a free developer account. You can register for a free developer account from .



  • A Red Hat Enterprise Linux ISO image. You can download it from after logging in with your subscription or developer account credentials.

A wizard will guide you through the process of creating a new virtual machine. You can choose the "Typical (recommended)" option for a quick and easy setup, or the "Custom (advanced)" option for more control and customization.


On the next screen, choose the "Installer disc image file (iso)" option and browse to the location where you saved the Red Hat Linux ISO image. VMware will automatically detect the operating system and version from the ISO image and fill in the details for you. Click "Next" to continue.


On the next screen, enter a name and a location for your virtual machine. You can use any name you like, but make sure it is descriptive and easy to remember. You can also change the location where your virtual machine files will be stored, or leave it as the default. Click "Next" to continue.


Step 2: Attach the Red Hat Linux ISO image to the virtual machine




On the next screen, specify the amount of memory (RAM) that you want to allocate to your virtual machine. The recommended amount is 4 GB, but you can adjust it according to your needs and available resources. Click "Next" to continue.


On the next screen, choose the type of network connection that you want to use for your virtual machine. You can choose between "NAT", "Bridged", "Host-only", or "Custom". The default option is "NAT", which means that your virtual machine will share the same IP address and network connection as your host machine. This is usually the easiest and most convenient option, but you can change it if you have specific requirements. Click "Next" to continue.


On the next screen, choose the type of disk that you want to use for your virtual machine. You can choose between "IDE", "SCSI", or "SATA". The default option is "SCSI", which is recommended for most Linux operating systems. Click "Next" to continue.


On the next screen, specify the size of the disk that you want to allocate to your virtual machine. The minimum size is 20 GB, but you can increase it if you plan to install more software or store more data on your virtual machine. You can also choose whether to store your disk as a single file or split it into multiple files. The default option is to store it as a single file, which is usually faster and more efficient. Click "Next" to continue.


On the next screen, review the settings of your virtual machine and make any changes if needed. You can also customize the hardware settings by clicking on the "Customize Hardware" button. This will allow you to adjust the number of processors, display settings, sound card, USB controller, and other devices. When you are done, click on the "Finish" button to create your virtual machine.


Step 3: Start the installation process and choose the language and keyboard layout




After creating your virtual machine, you will see it listed in the VMware library. Select it and click on the "Power on this virtual machine" button. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+B.


Your virtual machine will boot from the Red Hat Linux ISO image and start the installation process. You will see a welcome screen with a list of languages that you can choose from. Select your preferred language and click on the "Continue" button.
