I can't get my XP software to load in to the virtual machine once the VHD has been created.(2 meg RAM, 5G virtual hard disk)
The XP install all appears to go ok until the next stage after all the files have been copied across from the CD. Basically it stops and locks up with nil reponse.
Has anyone have any tips or help that can resolve this.
I am running win 7 home professional on a desktop PC with an ASUS F2A85-M MB, an AMD A8-5600K APU at 3600Mhz and 1x4Meg 1600Mhz DDR3 RAM. The PC has a SATA drive in slot 1, the DVD burner in 5 and 2 Seagate parallel ATA drives on 6 and 7 runnning with serial/parallel convertors. On the MB OnChip SATA channel is enabled and set to AHCI. However, SATA ports 5,6 and 7 are set IDE. I did originally use the main SATA hard drive for the virtual disc but when this didn't work I used one of the PATA drives with no difference.
One suggestion is that the OnChip SATA channel should be disabled but I don't know what the repercussions are in changing this on a running system. Any help appreciated.
