To disconnect the .iso from the .ovf follow these steps:

  • delete the associated .mf file
  • open the .ovf file using notepad and delete the following section:

<Item ovf:required="false">
    <rasd:AddressOnParent>0</rasd:AddressOnParent>
    <rasd:AutomaticAllocation>false</rasd:AutomaticAllocation>
    <rasd:ElementName>CD-ROM 1</rasd:ElementName>
