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.

Close Firefox and then reopen
If for whatever reason you’d like to switch back to your previous version of Firefox, simply run the following commands from Terminal:
sudo mv /usr/bin/firefox /usr/bin/firefox.bak sudo mv /usr/bin/firefox.old /usr/bin/firefox
