    Default Virtual drive within Vista.

    I've just been reading that it is possible to download MS Virtual PC and that it can be used to install XP as a virtual machine within Vista. see

    My question. Is there anway that this VPC can be somehow made to read my copy of XP, and its programs, that is in another partition on another drive?

    Yes, it can. Start the wizard, choose a plate to store it and click Next. Select the option that says "Linked to a hard disk (Advanced)".

    Note that doing this warned against. Due to the fact that it is a program you are giving direct access to your disk, and it cant be guaranteed XP will even boot under the virtual pc due to driver requirements etc
