Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Windows Virtual PC on Windows 7 Ultimate

I have ALL version of Windows 7 on a single disc.
I presently have the Ultimate 64 bit installed on my computer and would like to install
Windows Virtual PC.

What vs. of 7 O/S can I install with Windows Virtual PC?, or will Virtual PC not work on Windows 7?

I have tried to install the 64 bit Ultimate vs but after it is installed it will not boot up. I get message that
my machine is not 64 bit. I know full well that it is because my computer is 64 bit.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Windows VirtualPC can install any version of Windows 7 but it must be 32 bits. Virtual PC does not support 64 bit clients, even when running on a 64 bit host. To run 64 bit clients you must use a different virtualization program such as VirtualBox or VMWare.
