  • Virtual PC

    Is there a way to run a virtual PC with Windows 7 Home. Ive tried Microsofts product but will not work with anything except Win 7 Ultimate. If you have any suggestions of other programs I would greatly appreciate them. I would love to run Ubuntu or Linux without needing to dual boot.

      Ossian,
      Thanks for the input. I believe that I did try it and found that it was only compatible with Win 7 Ulitmate. Although I am not positive. I will try it this evening and post results tomarrow.
      Thanks

            Okay, I did download the Virtual PC 2007 last night. It does download and seems to work okay. But, there was a disclaimer that stated I was not using a supported OS and that this did not mean it would not work but that there was not support available if needed. So now Im going to attempt my CENTOS install and see how it goes. Thanks for the reply's.

                I concur also - although a java update might be needed as it loves to crash the browser.
