Hello there. I'm new to these forums. I'm not even sure if I'm posting in the right part.
Anyway, I'll get straight to the point.
I'm trying to install both Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP (Fundamentals for Legacy PCs) on two virtual HDs, but I seem to be having a hard time getting both of them to work. Here's what happens.
I have tried installing both through Virtual PC and the method described in http://reboot.pro/to...ot-os-from-vhd/ . When installing using the latter, the Setup program modifies my physical XP partition's boot loader (my HDD configuration is listed below). Other than that, the system seems to boot fine. But when I reach the boot screen, the system gets a BSoD (0x7B, I think). I have tried installing the WinVBlock driver in many ways. By using the "F6" disk image, through Virtual PC, and even tried installing it through a MS DaRT recovery disk. And none of these worked.
The problem is almost the same, except for one thing. When I try installing with the mounted ISO, the Setup program loads the WinVBlock driver. It recognizes the virtual HD disk, but won't recognize the partition already set in it, or even modify its contents. (It appears as an "unpartitioned space" and when I try to format it, the Setup program says the disk doesn't have a compatible partition for Windows 2000 or something.) My guess is the driver's not 100% compatible. Is there any alternative for using WinVBlock on Win2K?
Any advice for these? Thanks in advance!
