Does the CPU in your machine support hardware-assisted virtualization, and if so, is it enabled?

Hi Cluberti,

yeah its a Q6600 so it definately does, im running a vista vpc, and thats fine, its only server 2008, im wondering if i could have somehow downloaded the x64 edition rather than x86, because i dont believe virtual pc supports 64 bit os'es does it?

thanks

No, it doesn't - meaning you are probably right, you have an x64 copy of the .iso.
