Windows 7: Microsoft Virtual PC in Windows 7 - Lag and Fullscreen

Microsoft Virtual PC in Windows 7 - Lag and Fullscreen


I'm currently testing Microsoft Virtual PC that you can download from Microsoft Download center.

I have got it running and all but I seem to experiance some intense lag while installning Windows 7 Professional x86 onto the virtual machine...

So my first question is can I somhow reduce the lag?.

My hardware is 4GB ram, intel centrino 1,8 GHz duo core, 200GB HDD and NVIDIA GeForce 8400 M GT GPU (sony vaio laptop) and I have Windows 7 Home Premium as OS.

I have tryed set my Virtual Machine with 1GB of ram and 2GB of ram without resualt.

And my second question is; can I somehow use fullscreen mode? (Yes alt+enter dose not work)

Ohh and yes when try to mount a 64-bit installation onto the Machine is say my CPU dont support 64-bit system, but it does.

Thanks in advance!

If you are running a virtual machine other than the Windows XP Mode, you will have to adjust the screen resolution in Personalization, and the window will autonatically resize to fit the new screen resolution..
Not sure about the lag though. Windows XP Mode always runs a little slow on my computer. (My computer is normally really fast.) Maybe it's just a Virtual PC thing.
