I'm brand new to running virtual machines and need some help. I'm trying to get 8.1 enterprise into a VM (with VMware Player) and am currently running windows 8.1 as my main operating system. It's an ISO file and I'm aware that they generally need to be burned to a disc or to a bootable drive. Is this always the case? Is there anyway that I can save an alternate operating system on the hard drive on the main one that i'm running? Also when trying to download it, it doesn't seem to give me an option as to where it should be saved. The first time trying i downloaded 8.1 enterprise and it just changed it to my main operating system and i lost everything.
