I have heard that it does NOT work, although it apparently works in Virtual PC. This is only by word of mouth however, I have it natively installed

Hello Piotr, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I cannot confirm if it works with VirtualBox, but I can definitely confirm that Windows 7 works just fine as a host os and a guest VM with Virtual PC. I run it setup in this manner in Vista with Windows 7 as a VM, and in Windows 7 with Vista as a VM.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

@all Every build that I was able to get installed on the HD was able to be installed in Vbox for me. That would include 6801 x86, 6801 x86-64 and 7000.

@asmokki - Not until we get more details on what the problem is - you've given us the equivalent of telling your mechanic that your car won't start.
