i want to test out the windows 7 RC but i don't want to overwrite my current vista installation or dual-boot it.instead i want to install it on a virtual machine using Microsoft's Virtual PC 2007 as a guest OS.is it supported?if not then i have to download VirtualBox or VMWare.
Give it a try in VPC2007. I'm sure it will work. If not pick up VMware for windows, if I remember correctly there is a free version to use called "Vmware Server".
If you have any other questions let me know. I love the VmWare stuff. I use it at home and work and it works great!
for a true measure , install it on a spare pc
must better than running it virtually. how else wud u know if the system is smooth and worth using if u dont run it independently?
I love VurtualBox. Been using it for school and personal use a lot. The only limitations are the lack of "virtual hardware" and a few other things. Windows 7 RC1 should run the same in a VM as it would on a physical machine.
i wonder how's this new operating system? is it worth the upgrade?
i heard from people that it will run on any system with even 256MB RAM!?
