+rep to whoever can help me out with this.
My other computer is having issues so I'm on my mac at the moment trying to run windows through VMware.
The .iso file that I have on my mac desktop looks like this:
... and the VMware doesn't let me select the above icon to use as the new operating system when I'm creating a new machine.
I think the icon needs to look like this to work:
Note: Also, both of these files seem to end in ".iso" so that's another aspect that confuses me.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Try this. I didn't have this problem but I've heard of it and I think that should solve it.
Maybe the .iso is inside that archive? Have u tried unzipping the contents? You can try changing the extension to .zip by renaming it and try unzipping. If it doesn't work then just revert back the extension to .iso and find another solution.
An .iso is basically an archive that is easily burned to disc. I'd recommend mounting the .iso file to a (bootable) USB drive.
Here are some tutorials for mac OS: http://evan.borgstrom.ca/post/131420...e-usb-from-iso and http://blog.lewan.com/2012/02/10/mak...x-from-an-iso/
