EpiServer Global Error - No http handler was found for request type 'GET' - Loads a blank page on Localhost


I am running CMS 6R2 on Windows 7 virtual machine on a mac through VMWARE fusion. I tried installing everything and setting up the system but I keep getting the error.

The issue is when I fire localhost, all it does is just loads up a completely blank page with no source at all. When I look at the EpiserverLog.txt file I see the below error 

ERROR [24] EPiServer.Global.Global_Error - 1.2.5 Unhandled exception in ASP.NET
System.Web.HttpException (0x80004005): No http handler was found for request type 'GET'
   at System.Web.HttpApplication.MapHttpHandler(HttpContext context, String requestType, VirtualPath path, String pathTranslated, Boolean useAppConfig)
   at System.Web.HttpApplication.MapHandlerExecutionStep.System.Web.HttpApplication.IExecutionStep.Execute()
   at System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep(IExecutionStep step, Boolean& completedSynchronously)


Need some help ASAP.
