Hello Ulls,

If you mean to install your xp64 for the virtual machine, then no. You can only use a 32-bit OS as a virtual machine (guest).

Ex_Brit and Brink Thanks,

I just got it running and its ok but I see no big thing with it. My 2 cents, I'll keep running with Sun Virtual box or vmware. It is hard to go back to 32-bit after running with x64 for long time now.

Thanks

The main items that are different with Windows Virtual PC is the ability to have and use shortcuts from the Virtual Machine in Windows 7, and for the Virtual Machine to have access to all of the files and folders on the computer's drives.

That's great to know since I just wiped the 32bit XP out here!

While waiting for the 5th deadline I will be running a few scans on the ones seeing the matched numbers to look them over for anything. I was wondering if the XP mode is available now or you have to wait for that one as well?

I'm been busy rearranging a few things like changing ports for each drive as well and have few small recovery partitions I can choose for this. Well I have to be prepared for the big day here!



"Now where did XP go again?" "sorry made room for each 7 to have it's own drive!"
