    Ubuntu CD images never reboot after installation in VMWare

    The title is worth a thousand words.

    After I install any Ubuntu variant on VMWare Workstation, they never reboot and I have to shut it down. It is a renowned bug, so anyone know how to fix?

    Reboot, as in - press enter to eject cd?

    Yes, sir, it has been a long time since this bug was found in VMWare, and NO one is fixing this.
