Virtual PC keeps Shutting down.


  • Hi, 

    When I start my virtual PC , after booting up , the login screen appears , and immediately , the virtual pc screen disappears and the status is shown as "Powered down"

    I use windows 7 and virtual pc hard disk uses windows xp.

    Any idea how to resolve the problem

  • Which Windows XP do you use? The pre-configured XP Mode or have you installed your own XP licenses.

  • I use my own XP  , the pre-configured XP mode just works fine. Thanks

  • Are you having any luck with this.. I am having the same issue. I have tried with both XP VM as well as Vista Business VM. the Vista machine ran great until I restored an image to the virtual disk. the restore was successful but the VM will not run in my virtual PC environment. I have a Hyper-v2012 environment at work which the machine runs just fine in? I am thinking it is definitely related to Hardware and resources.
