re: Need help for installing windows 7 on Linux machine

If you are had shutdown facing issue from the virtual server which is "Windows Virtual PC" then it could perhaps be the graphics mode for the XServer configuration. You may try with the option text-based installer to install the guest OS in 16-bit. If that doesn't help then it maybe the incompatibility with the Host 64-Bit "Windows Virtual PC" and the 32-Bit Ubuntu installer. Try the x86_64 distribution. I have a test machine that I will try to simulate the problem you're having and provide a resolution; if found.

re: Need help for installing windows 7 on Linux machine

I tried frequently to install Linux Xandros on the Virtual PC in Windows 7, using equally the disk and the image (ISO) file, but was not capable to complete the installation. The installation starts, it checks for peripherals, hardware, etc. and after that it stalls into a black oversized screen. Am I missing something? What should I look for? Why does it end into an oversized black screen instead of progressing with the actual installation of Xandros?

re: Need help for installing windows 7 on Linux machine

I got some suggestions for taming an Ubuntu installation under Virtual PC, though I don't know if the suggestions will help. I no longer have the Ubuntu virtual machine up and running, so I'm not able to test at this time?

HaloFX, while are you receiving the similar error message when it will be shut down? So when you get a virtual pc to run that may you want to just go for the virtual box which it can be free virtualization software that is working well

re: Need help for installing windows 7 on Linux machine

Perhaps I am supposed to have been clearer in my reply. I was asking Halifax to try equally things let me recognize if present are any errors and give Virtual Box (which, like Virtual PC, is free) a whirl. If Virtual Box works and Virtual PC doesn't, that not only gives us another diagnostic data point, but also opens an alternative tool that HaloFX can use.

Does Andros present the choice to switch the display resolution or color depth while you boot the installer? If so. Then no excuses' idea should help you (try a 16-bit color depth for the display resolution). If Andros has a text-mode installer, that may work as well.
