    Morning All,
    Happy Friday! I’ve downloaded the MS Server 12 VM from the Microsoft website. First of all, on my Windows 7 Pro 64 bit machine, I installed XP mode and MS Virtual PC. I then create a new VM and point it to the file I downloaded and extracted. When I try to start the VM, it gets just past the BIOS screen and then tells me that Winlogin.exe won’t run as I don’t have a 64 bit processor, which I do. It’s a AMD Turnion X2 64…………..

    Laptop also has 3 GB RAM with 3GB defined in VM….

    Any ideas please peoples?

    Thanks!

    Tom

    Server 2012 is 64 bit only, so won’t run at all under virtual PC
    You need HyperV or another 64-bit virtualisation platform

    Sorry…

    That’s a bit mad, ah well, nevermind.

    Thanks for clarifying for me Tom. Have a great weekend.

    If you also download Windows 8 you can run Server 2012 as a VM under Desktop Hyper-V. Might need more than 3gb RAM though to get decent performance.
