Virtual PC

I finally got around to installing an XP virtual machine under Virtual PC on my VIsta desktop PC. This is one of the last things I need to do before wiping out the XP install on that machine, which I’m currently running in dual-boot mode.

I discovered one odd thing while setting this up. If you install XP with SP1 under VPC on Vista, the VPC additions won’t quite work right until you upgrade the virtual machine to SP2. Just a little hint, in case anyone else runs across this problem.

I’m currently letting the XP VM upgrade itself to SP3 via WIndows Update. Boy, that’s taking a long time!
