Install Windows Vista in Virtual PC 7
Authored by: Norton on Jun 12, '06 10:49:16AM

After filtering the whining and digs towards MS the article basicly says:

1. VPC doesn't recognize DVD images greater than 2.2 GB.
2. VPC allows you to set 'ACPI Aware OS' to 'Yes.'
3. It takes about two and half hours to install Vista.
4. Vista runs slowly in VPC.

And what did you contribute? I didn't know that it was necessary to change the BIOS setting to get Vista to work on VPC...

You gotta just love people like 'Norton'! Really makes you wonder what their purpose in life is.

Oh, how our world would be such a different place without 'em.

I agree with Norton. I'm going to petition Rob to change the hints submission form so that hints must be entered as numbered instructional entries of no more than 100 characters each. I won't rest until MacOSXHints is as grey, soul-less, and unimaginative as Redmond in the dead of Winter.

So you went through the entire registration process this morning just to be a troll. Well, I suppose at least you're not a lazy troll.

Actually I'm a long-time contributor. Norton's dross and pedantic reply to a potentially useful hint I thought deserved a response. This is my first attempt at trolling. Sorry if it's not up to your standards :)

Vykor, after posting this it occurred that your post was likely not directed at me; if that's the case then my humble apologies. It's just that my thinky-thing hurts when confronted with an intellect as wondrous as Norton's. Or maybe it's just an instinctive reaction to the name "Norton" in context with any kind of Mac troubleshooting...
