Hi Samir,
did you unzip using the 7zip utility or Windows built-in? Windows unzip chokes on large files...
This is from

If you experience trouble unzipping the Teradata Express VMware images, please verify the file size of the downloaded file.  As these files are very large, some file corruption may occur during the download process. 

MD5 Checksums
Additionally, the MD5 checksum for each image is provided to help verify the integrity of the downloaded file.  To calculate the MD5 checksum for your downloaded files, follow these steps for your computer platform:

  • For Linux users the command line syntax is: md5sum {file}
  • For Mac users the command line syntax is: openssl md5 {file}
  • For Windows user: Download a checksum tool, such as this command-line tool from Microsoft.
