Problems Booting Centos Guest In A Virtual Machine

Problem

Booting into a fresh Centos installation inside a virtual machine results in a black screen. The Centos login screen does not appear. This problem has been replicated in VMWare Workstation 9, VMWare ESX 4.0, and Virtual Box.

Resolution

This problem occurs when the Centos ISO is still attached to the virtual guest. Disconnect the Centos ISO and reboot the virtual machine.
