Vista

Discussion in 'Virtual PC' started by David Sherman, May 19, 2006.

  1. Has anyone gotten the Feb 2006 CLP installed on Virtual PC. I can get
    as far as when the user must change the time. VPC just hangs. I can't
    get the next button to work on that screen.

    Any suggestions?

    How long are you giving it? Vista is going to be running *really slow*
    until you install the additions. (and you need the additions from Virtual
    Server R2)

    It is not hanging. If you use the mouse on that screen, it can take 1-2
    hours to get past the screen, depending on your machine.

    Instead, press Enter. This is equivalent to clicking Next, but it will only
    take about 15 minutes to get to the next screen.

    If you need to change the time/date/timezone, do yourself a favor and wait
    until after Setup.

    This is not a joke. I wish it was, but it's not. VPC is not a good way to
    run Vista. Perhaps someday it will be, but not today.

    It installs quite fast on my machine in Virtual Server R2. So install that if
    you want to run Vista installations. If you like Virtual PC more, I guess you
    can use the .vhd in Virtual PC once you have installed it in VSR2.

    That might not be enough time, hard to tell. How much RAM are you dedicating
    to the Vista VM?

  10. I hope that the following is a help.

    When I do a start, run, cmd, Ipconfig /all, I get NO ip address. It
    says media disconnect.

    The default gateway, DNS and Wins are the same for all my other
    machines.

    I see an error messahe on the screen:
    There is an IP conflict with another system on the network.

    What I don't understand is how I can get an IP conflict when this VP
    session has no ip address and I am using the DHCP of the linksys
    router.

    When look under personalize, properties, I see that the conenction
    states "Media State disabled".

    Again, I see that There is an IP conflict with another system on the
    network.

    Again suggestions.


    Thanks

  11. If you go into Virtual PC, and select settings on the virtual machine -
    what do you have configured for the network connection?

    Ok, but what is the setting under "Adapter 1"?

    Does it list your Network card, Shared Networking (NAT), etc?
     
    Steve Jain, May 21, 2006

  14. It shows Shareed Networking(Nat): yes

    This is only true for older Vista builds. Although the February CTP build
    may be faster, later builds are just as agonizingly slow to install under
    Virtual Server 2005 R2 as they are under VPC 2004 SP1, so switching to
    Virtual Server is a very short-lived solution to this particular issue.

    If you are running the beta of SP1 for Virtual Server R2, all builds of
    Vista would install faster, but only if you are able to take advantage of
    the new hardware virtualization feature in SP1. The current beta requires an
    Intel CPU with VT (formerly known as Vanderpool) support, but Beta 2 will
    add support for Pacifica (AMD's equivalent technology). The final release of
    SP1 for R2 isn't expected until 2007.

  16. Since networking wasn't working, I decided to kill the VP session and
    re-install,

    What a mistake.

    I can't get the video system to work.

    Change it to your network card, no restart needed.

  18. There are 3 options:
    Not connected
    Local
    Shared

    I have tried shared which is the default setting and local. I stil
    can't get networking to work except for a "local' connection which
    means that the local network card works. I have fixed IP addresses and
    static via my Linksys router which also serves as a DHCp server.

    Any sugguestions?
    thanks

    That's not what Local means. Local means that any VMs running on the
    host will be able to communicate with each other but not with the host
    nor with any machines elsewhere on your network.

    I've lost track here, what OS are you running on the host? What network
    card do you have installed in the host? You need to confirm that the
    Virtual Machine Network Services are bound to the NIC installed in the
    host. It would appear that this isn't the case.

  20. Lets add a few comments:

    I have installed WIndows Vista 5308 over Windows XP. Installation went
    fine with some problems. I can connect to the internet. When I look
    under network center. under network details, I see a "network. with
    internet accress.
    I needed a clean copy for a presentation, so I took a second copy of
    Build 5308 and installed it under Virtual PC 2004. I tried to install
    Vista under Vmware 4.53 and it didn't work.

    I also have installed Windows Server 2003 under VPC. That session has
    as Networking - Shared NAT which I presume to be the default setting.

    After the installation of Vista, I can't connect to the internet. the
    only difference between the installaion over XP and VPC session on
    Vista is that when I look under network center. under network details,
    I see a "local network. I see NO way to change that Local network
    setting to a network with internet access.

    If the default setting is Network Shared NAT, then I should get
    access. I have tired a fixed IP Address with defined WINS and DNS
    addresses. I have also tired the settings in my Windows Server 2003
    session. Still no luck.

    I have no idea what you mean by binding NIC on host since the same
    settings work with a Windows Server 2003.

    Thanks
