Hello Kelly,

Thanks for your reply. I'm using a Windows7 64 bit host. On that I'm
running VMware Workstation11. I am attempting to get the latest
talking Arch iso going, though I've tried back to the 2012 iso as I've
got the 2014 and 2013 isos, none talk, and they use to. They use to,
this all use to work. I'm assuming that when VMware went from their
es1371 audio to the hd audio emulated sound card that broke things.
I've tried on various hardware compatibility levels starting with
workstation11 and downgrading no luck.

I'd like to help fix this, let me know what else I can do.
