Loading Operating System on Virtual PC

Post by kwvh »

I hope I am in the correct board with this question.
I have Windows 7 Ultimate and have Virtual PC loaded. The XP mode works fine, and older virtual drives that I created on other machines in the past work fine as well. However, I am trying to create a virtual machine using WindowsServer 2008, but I can't figure out how to get the virtual machine to boot off of the CD/DVD.
Is there something I am missing?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sorry about the lack of replies - Windows Server 2008 appears to be off-centric for the audience of Eileen's Lounge...

See if Install windows virtual pc helps. It talks about installing Windows 7 but should be applicable to Windows Server.
