Chrome and Win 8 aside, i though that was the purpose of the VM.
I could use the laptop as a guide to install it in my desktop ,IF, it was within capability and would actually be a benefit.
I am picking up bits and pieces and I learned you have to install seperate vms.
Your information is important and puts this in a different light. I am asking my self if it is worth doing for a learnng experience and for safe, usefullness.
Any reply appreciated.
In any case, thank you for the referral.
