Yup, goes to a dead end. You'd have to contact MS in regards to that, nothing can be done from here as such.

Where did you download the media from ? If it wasnt Microsoft, it may have been "fiddled".

You have to add a Hard-drive to the VM, shut the Virtual machine down, and edit the settings and add a HDD.
