Virtual PC

I hope this thread applies to Virtual PC 2007

I have Windows 7 installed as my main operating system and I tried to use Virtual PC 2007 to use my Vista Home Premium x64 as a virtual machine, and i realized that the software doesn't support 64 bit operating systems (by all means, correct me if I'm wrong) and i had to try a different solution.

My question is: Does Virtual PC 2007 support 64 bit operating systems? and if not, when, if ever, could I expect that option?

Thanks in advance!

It would seem that we would be able to link virtual pc's together creating a virtual network within our existing hardware based network. is this going to be possible?

and another, with the rapid advance in cell phone technology when can we expect applications that give us full control over our home or work PC's.

I have two questions.
  1. Why is XP mode only 16bit color?
  2. Do you have any plans for 64bit guest OS support?

1. Would they consider releasing a win9x mode? So instead of XP mode, it could be one for Windows 98 in case anyone needs even older compatibility.

2. Could they add floppy image support.

ooo i have another one. will it in the foreseeable future be possible to install a cloud based OS, linking it to cloud based storage like windows own skydrive into a virtual environment as a server that we can access from other client software. example my always on home office desktop gets a new virtual environment, the OS and storage are completely dependent on the cloud. i'm away from home and lets say i don't have my laptop on me so i use one any other windows based PC to log into my virtual environment where i have all of my files and programs.

Running Windows 7 in XP mode no cd/dvd

Running Windows 7 in XP mode no cd/dvd

I have two hard drives run in Super-Speed and two DVD burners, all on SATA.
Running Windows 7 Pro. When I go to xp mode everything works except the cd/dvd player just show the virtual cd player. I go to the settings and change it to physical drive D (have tried both D and E) but I can't get the use of either physical DVD drives.
I have uninstalled both the Windows Virtual PC and XP mode and re-installed it but it never shows it. Everything works in Windows 7 and everything else works in XP mode, ie: all USB's windows 7 hard drive.

Please, how can I get the CD/DVD burners to show and work in XP mode?
Thanks Doug

I'd appreciate a simple and effective way to multi-boot from the VHD files created by VirtualPC, including OSes other than Windows (Ubuntu, or Red Hat, for instance). I need to use Linux for my work at college, and being able to boot into it, instead of running the virtual machine on top of Windows 7, would be really handy.

How is Parallels virtualization different from normal virtualization?
I started thinking about our computers.. why we cannot run two operating systems on the same computer at the same time - without virtualization. We have plenty of Ram these days and often 2 or 4 Central Processing Units. Surely someone could come up with a way to make this work. So I started...

CAUTION!<---Make sure MSFT doesn't GIVE you TWO KEYS!=MSFT=wasteful
I just realized that once you get a key and click on DOWNLOAD, MSFT gives you yet ANOTHER KEY and of course it will work (all the keys work, 32 works for 64, 64 works for 32, et-cetera), this means MSFT is being wasteful and we will ALL be getting 2 keys. Make sure when you click on DOWNLOAD,...
