Photon OS Installation Issue

When you try to install Photon OS 5.0 as a guest operating system on a virtual machine with an installation medium connected to an IDE interface, the installation might fail with the following error:

Cannot proceed with the installation because the installation medium is not readable...

The issue occurs because Photon OS do not supports the IDE interface from version 5.0 onwards.


To install Photon OS on a virtual machine, ensure that you select an installation medium connected to a SATA interface, and then install the Photon OS as the guest operating system.
