Virtual PC 2007

Virtual PC 2007
 
Virtual PC 2007 is virtualisation software by Microsoft. Virtual PC virtualizes a standard PC and its associated hardware.
 
The newest release, Windows Virtual PC, does not run on versions of Windows earlier than Windows 7, and does not emulate MS-DOS or operating systems earlier than Windows XP SP3 Professional.

Virtual PC: Create new virtual PC

Virtual PC: Create new virtual PC
 
To create a new virtual machine (vm) just start Virtual PC and click New from the Virtual PC console. You are asked to pick the memory available and the virtual hard disk size. Give enough memory for the OS you wish to install and keep the defaults for the virtual disk. Note it will not create the full size disk on your system yet, just a small 30k file initially to which it will add when the disk receives data. Choose the operating system you wish to install and select other if your choice is not in the list. Save everything and press start!
 
When starting up the vm boots and displays a message it could not boot. Logically, there is yet no OS installed.
 
I used an iso image of the windows installation CD. From the vm menu I selected CD and capture ISO pointing it to the iso of the windows installation DVD. I selected Ctrl-Alt-Del from the action menu and the installation started: "Windows is loading files..."

Virtual PC 2007: Release the mouse
 
During the usage of the virtual machine he mouse can be locked inside the vm. Pressing Alt-Gr (the Alt key to the right of the keyboard) releases the mouse to the host operating system. Ctrl-Alt-Del will also work.

Virtual PC 2007: 32 and 64 bits

Virtual PC 2007: 32 and 64 bits
 
A 64 bits OS could not be installed a 32 bits copy of Virtual PC 2007 running on a 32 bits host operating system.  
 
host OS
guest OS
        32 bits           64 bits
32 bits        ok            fail
64 bits        ok            fail

 
It seems impossible to install a 64 bits OS inside any Virtual PC, even on a 64 bits version of it running on a 64bits host.

Virtual PC 2007: Using Undo Disks
 
The undo disks option can be used to control changes made to the virtual PC. The changes to the hard disk are collected in a separate file. After shutting down the vm Virtual PC will ask you what to do with the changes. The choices are:
 

  • 1. Commit changes to the virtual hard disk
    Select this option if you want to save the changes. Cannot be undone.
  • 2. Save undo disk changes
    Select this option if you want to carry over the changes to the next session. You get the choice to  commit or rollback all changes at the end of the next session.  
  • 3. Delete undo disk changes
    Select this option to not save any changes applied during this session.
