Build 5536 x32 does not install in Virtual PC 5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Previous Build (5472) was able to load it fully in VPC but this always sits on "Completing Installtion" step. I tried this numerous times and also increased the size of memory allocated to it. If you leave for for awhile, the VPC Guest session turns to "not responding". Another Beta tester also has the same issue.

    Any ideas ?

    Update: I closely watched another install and after it reboots and starts on the "Completing Installation", it will clear the screen, write quite a bit to the virtual disk and then it looks like it attempts to do something across the network, with a constant green led on network icon in VPC. Then it immediately turns to "not responding". Restarting the Guest OS restarts the install where it prompts for keyboard and CD Key.

    My specs:
    AMD X2 3800
    2 GB of DDR memory
    250GH Sata drive
    Asus AN8 systemboard
    ATI X800GTO pci express.
    XP SP2 with latest fixes.

  • OK I have SUCCESS !!!!!!!!

    I did two things differently this time and am not sure which one corrected it.

    1. I created a fixed virtual hard disk of 30GB
    2. Changed networking setting to local network instead of NAT

    I suspect step 1. corrected it.
