  • Yes, I did, for the most part it worked okay, but in setting up a
    Windows 7 VM, I had to disable USB support to boot up the install disk.
     
    Hyper-V is also available...

  • +1 for recommending Hyper-V! I use it on my laptop and it works great.

  • Got it on now, installing 2 Virtual Machines, Win XP Pro x64 and Ubuntu 11 desktop. So far everything looks good.

    Thanks for your input
