if you find this error while installing Centos 8 on the Vmware workstation message like “Switch root error section %package does not end with %end: pane is dead centos“. you must have centos 8 package when installing in the VMware. you might be getting this issue because you need to remove another file which I have shown below.
You can press cltr+alt to test the Centos without installing it in the VMware workstation and just remove another CD/DVD as shown in below figure.
Go to the settings → Click on CD/DVD and save it.
Now shutdown this VMware and restart again. You will see the installation screen for Centos 8.
you can either disconnect or remove that iso.
Now you can install Centos 8 Linux on Vmware workstation.
You’re done. pane is dead centos centos 8 section packages file system error command to find error windows file system structure error in windows
