I downloaded Windows XP VPC with IE6 from Microsoft.com last year. Today I download Windows 7 RC (iso) and wanted to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7. I found it was not allowed to upgrade directly due to Microsoft policy.
During the install, I got 2 points:
1. Windows XP was installed in C drive. The folder’s name is Windows. When I installed Windows 7 directly, it also installed in C drive. It changed Windows to Windows. old and got a new Windows folder.
2. After the install of Windows 7, it reset my virtual machine additions. Therefore, I needed to install virtual machine additions again. After I installed it, I needed to restart Windows 7. During the reboot, I saw the blue screen.
After long investigation, I found I didn’t install Virtual PC 2007 SP1. After Installing SP1 , the blue screen was gone.
If you see the blue screen next time, install Virtual PC 2007 SP1 first. Your issue will be fixed.
