Now that I'm done setting up my new XP VM's new home, I'm finally ready to actually install XP. To do this, I go back to VirtualBox's master menu and hit the Start button. This prompts me to tell me where the XP installation disc can be found. In my case it's going to be off my DVD drive.
I then hit the next button and I'll soon be at a place that anyone who's installed XP over the years will recognize at a glance. The XP Setup screen.
Just proceed as usual, enter the serial number, watch the files get copied, get a cup of coffee and, in anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on how fast your system is, you'll soon have XP up.
