  • We had to fiddle with the virtual machine's settings before it recognized the host machine's CD drive. But once it finally recognized that there was a bootable CD in the drive, things got going.

  • Once XP's installation gets underway, it's at all different from what XP looks like when it is being installed on a real machine.

  • While we were installing Windows XP, not only did the console show how that VM was running, even the thumbnail was a pretty accurate reflection of what was happening at the time.

  • Ahh, so this is the equivalent of

    running Classic (OS9) applications in OSX. And it's free but not a default installation
    with Vista?

    In Mac, once you clicked on an OS 9 application, Classic started immediately. This
    looks a little complicated, naming a 'machine' and stuff like that.

    Well, have fun Vista folks. At least you can still run your programmes that aren't
    Vista-ble yet which is a good thing.

  • RE: Picking the OS (Virtual PC 2007 Installation Sequence)

    Hello
    Everything went nice. But one problem.
    The mouse tracking does not work well.
    If you click inside the virtual PC window, the mouse remains there. No way to get it out from the window. Microsoft had some instructions on installing some software but it never worked. Any idea ?
