  • XP-PRO virtual install to Windows 8 Pro machine

    Working on an ASUS Windows 8 64 bit notebook with all Hyper-V features enabled. Followed the guidance of an article but with partial success. Two virtual machines are seen to be running, an external adapter was created and when the option to install the OS the physical drive was selected.

    In the Hyper V manager the effort to launch the connect button sometimes leads to the window with the Hyper V logo and sometimes not. Also when the adapter was created a window showed the attempt to resolve the DHCP but does not complete.

    I have the XP Pro installation disc in this machine but now cannot find the way back to that option. So.. I have done several of the required settings but not all. Images of what was done are uploaded to:!3770 Looking for guidance to get virtual XP Pro running properly.
