Already the beta was stable, with this RC I have had absolutely no problems. No crashes, no BSOD's. An extra bonus is you get a free and working XP.

VirtualBOX is also, in my opinion, very good. I don't know which one is better.

You have to try and see.

Hello, Antman and welcome to SevenForums.

I'm sorry to tell you that VirtualXP supports Aero only in your dreams. But if you have enough willpower, every dream can be true so maybe one day VirtualXP supports Aero.

I'm pleased to be able to help newbies like you.

This leaves VMware (server, I think) as his remaining no-cost choice. But I do not know the video quality that version supports.

When DJG gets back, I might go back to my orig persona.

Otherwise, in memoriam, Petrossa.

I assume he means a Vista and / or Win7 vhd doesn't support Aero.
