    None reported.

    Without knowing anything about your system, try
    installing the Guest with no network adapter configured
    for the VM and see if that works.

    There is no NIC in the host. Is the guest network adaptor configured as part
    of Virtual PC before tyou install the OS ?

  4. If you change the network connection to 'not connected' under the
    virtual machine settings during installation - you should avoid this
    message. You can change it back to shared networking later.

    I believe that Virtual PC is not supported under WinXP Home...and Windows
    Server 2003. When I used it on Windows Server 2003, had lots of image
    problems, like being corrupted and all. for Home, so for no bad news, however
    when you install it, it will tell you that it is not supported.
