In XenCenter, click : New VM.
Choose the guest OS that you want to install.
In our case, we chose to install the guest OS using the host's DVD drive.
So, in the VMware VM settings, choose the installation CD of the Linux OS you want to install and check the "Connected" box that was unchecked automatically at the end of the Citrix XenServer installation.
Then, in XenCenter, click Create Now.
The installation of the guest OS starts in server mode.
Debian 7.0 x64 in our case is installed.
As you will see, Windows virtual machines also work without problem.
Click on : New VM.
In this tutorial, we will install a virtual machine with Windows 7 (64-bit).
Enter a name for your virtual machine : Windows 7 (64-bit).
By default, the server DVD drive is used.
Go to the VMware settings of your "Citrix XenServer" virtual machine and select the Windows iso file.
Note : check the "Connected" box.
In XenCenter, continue the steps.
Allocate enough RAM to the virtual machine (depending on how much RAM is allocated to your XenServer server).
Click : Create Now.
The virtual machine starts automatically on the Windows installation DVD.
Wait while installing Windows.
Click on "VM -> Install XenServer Tools" and install these XenServer Tools.
Once the XenServer Tools are installed, don't forget to click on "Eject" to eject the XenServer Tools iso file.
