Using the image LibreELEC-Virtual.x86_64-7.0.2.img.gz
I was not able to use the installer under VMWare, so I used QEMU to work around:
Create a VMWare disk image to contain the installation[font="courier new,courier,monospace"]:[/font]
Then run the qemu with USB and boot menu:
Select the USB device, then select installer SYSLINUX option. The process will take about 10 minutes.
Go back to VMWare and create a new VM (Other 64bit) using the disk image created previously.
You must now fix the virtual sound driver: the sb16 and es1371 modules are not installed so we have to use hdaudio. Edit the .vmx configuration and make sure the sound entries are as follows:
sound.present = "TRUE"
sound.filename = "-1"
sound.autodetect = "TRUE"
sound.virtualdev = "hdaudio"
You should now be able to start the VMWare LibreElec guest.
