My experience with VPC 7.0 has been positive thus far. Runs quite well on my old dual G4 867 and my 1.6ghz G5 (I have less than 2gb of ram). I've loaded SUSE, Mandrake, and Red Hat thus far and it...

Connectix used to have a KB article that detailed how you could free up enough of that 640kb of RAM in DOS for this sort of thing. Anyone with serious DOS-fu and memory of old DOS games should be...

It's serious overkill, but I can tell you that MS One Note runs just fine in Virtual PC.

Re: VPC 7.0/Vaio system restore disks/Win XP 528 Views / 3 Replies  
System restore disks rarely, if ever, work on any hardware other than the machine they shipped with. Generally, they're BIOS locked installs, or it's a disk image sort of dealie. Either way, it's...

I regularly run a Win2K VM and it worked out of the box for me. From experience I can tell you that if your networking is set to shared, don't make ANY...

Haven't seen any benchmarks yet. No, it's not a 2.0ghz P4, as they emulate a P2/P3.

VPC emulates a soundblaster 16 or something very close to that, according to the device manager.

Considering that you're trying to get sound and mouse working, I will theorize that you want to...

Re: Possible to use the mouse in DOS mode in VPC 7? 539 Views / 10 Replies  
Look in the Manual & Tools folder on the installer CD. There are DOS additions there that you should install.

I would start by booting into 'single user mode' (hold down command-s on boot IIRC), and then enter 'fsck -y' and attempt a permissions repair.

If that doesn't do it, then look into third party...

Re: USB Floppy in Virtual PC 490 Views / 2 Replies  
It will work. Floppy drives just show up as an a: drive in Virtual PC. The only gotcha is that if you then enable it as a USB device in the VM settings, it will disappear from the Mac and be...

Not activation, no. You still have to enter a product key, but it does not require that VPC be activated.

Actually, I would say that the reviews for the G5 have been mostly positive except for the >2gb RAM bug, which they've acknowledged.

I have a dual G4 867 with 1gb of RAM and it seems snappy...

I have tried Red Hat 9 and Mandrake 9.1 and they installed and were usable. I'm not a major linux head, so I can't swear that *everything* was working.

The G5 >2gb memory bug is significant. I was...

I suspect that's because the emulated hardware is running a different BIOS now, likely to keep lockstep with Virtual PC 2004 for Windows.
