Instant VMware Player for Virtualization – quick review

Instant Vmware Player for VirtualizationInstant Vmware Player for Virtualization by Kevin L Sapp

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is for you, if you are just starting with the virtualization – (especially VMware Player) – right now.

Contains from the beginning a step-by-step VMware Player installation&configuration guide (for linux/windows platforms). Very logical really easy to understand. There are lots of good screenshots, which also help you to understand the setup steps quickly and easily. The book is not a rocket science, and not so long. A full windows 8 OS virtual machine setup, configuring and installation with VMware tools is covered (from ISO image/bootable media). Even the installation with VHD is described good. There is a chapter about the VM backup as well.

I would recommend to everyone, who wants to run a 2nd (3rd, 4th..) operating system in parallel with the native already installed OS, but he/she never virtualized OS till now.
