I confirm 0016457. Using Workstation Player 15.5.0 build-14665864 and CentOS-8-x86_64-1905-dvd1.iso.

Workaround:
1. create a VM without OS
2. start VM
3. change VM settings to read from CentOS 8 ISO image
4. restart VM

W/A works great, thanks. Minor nit, WP 15.5 does not allow setting the VM "type" to Centos8, using 7.
Hopefully that's just a label thing and it won't affect func of anything 8-based in the image.
