CentOS in Vmware

So, I was trying to install CentOS 5.3 in Vmware and once it will execute the setup process and after a few clicks I was presented with the Disk Partitioning Page, clicking “Next” would reveal an error that

No Drives Found An error has occurred – no valid devices were found on which to create new file systems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem

Selecting and IDE Disk resolved the issue as when we create a VM in Vmware with default settings it uses SCSI.

In future always select “custom” when creating a new vm and select IDE instead of SCSI as your Hard Disk type.
