    After removing Virtual PC 2004 from which I created a Windows Vista Virtual
    Machine, and installing Virtual PC 2007, my Vista Virtual Machine will not
    boot from the hard drive. How can I fix that?

    Was it in a saved state? If so, delete the .vsv file and try again. It
    should boot up OK.

    Try deleting the vmC file from VPC 2004 and recreating a new one for VPC 2007
    - it can get stuck thinking it should use hardware assisted virtualization,
    which is bad if you don't actually have any. I've reported it, reported that
    the Vmc is different and they just closed it as unreproducable even though
    any moron with VPC with 2004 and 2007 can easily use the same values to
    produce 2 totally different vmc files to compare and see that the vpc2004 vmc
    file in 2007 defaults to hardware virtualization on with no way to turn if
    off if you don't actually have hardware virtualization.

    Frankly, I'm thinking of moving to VMWare. It might cost more, but it has
    features that VPC will probably never get no matter how many people ask for
    them like USB support (which is bad, since parallel ports are going the way
    of the floppy disk and there is no support for USB keys without usb support
    in the first place)
