Microsoft Virtual Machine

By nhiep_nguyen ·
Hello all,

I recently install Microsoft Virtual Machine 2004.
I have two questions about it, and am thankful for your help.

1/- I've tried to install XP SP2 on it without success, following Microsoft leads at Is there any reason for that?
2/- In case the virtual machine is hit by malware, would the host computer be harmed?

Thank you for any suggestion.

If you are running an OS as a Virtual Machine and it gets hit No it shouldn't adversely impact on the +Base OS. But bear in mind that you are running a MS Base Installation with a Virtual MS OS with all MS products so anything is possible depending on what you get hit with.

As far as getting it to run a Virtual Machine as I've never used MS offering in this I can't really help you out to much mainly because I prefer to use a different suppliers product to move away from having an all MS installation which remains an Unknown but for help I would try here and then refine your search down as required
