    Hi,
    May I have installed virtual server with Windows Server 2003 on pc with Windows XP ?
    I need it because of Sharepoint. SharePoint can be installed only on Windows Server. I have production version on the server with Windwos Server 2003 and need some test version for develop new features.

    Thanks

    If the question is “Will Windows XP host a Windows 2003 client under Virtual Server” then yes it will.

    Just to clarify the issue here: although Virtual Server 2005 can be installed on Windows XP Professional (only, not Home!), Microsoft do not recommend it for production environments.

    You should use Microsoft Windows XP Professional as a host operating system only in a non-production environment.
