New OS in Virtual PC

Hi all,

I have one problem! I installed Virtual PC and XP Mode and now i don't know how to install new OS! I want Linux to install and there is no options for new Virtual PC or OS!

Anyone?

Go to Start, All Programs, Windows Virtual PC and click Windows Virtual PC

At top of window should be button for "Create virtual machine".

Rather than it's own stand-alone GUI window....they integrated the functionality into the Windows Explorer shell. Personally I don't like it...but I guess they are shooting for consistency.

I'm always telling to check tutorials section. Why I didn't now, is unclear. Of course you are right, so here's my modified answer to OP:

Check the tutorials section!
