Microsoft Virtual PC 2007

Virtual PC 2007 SP1 is a powerful software virtualization solution that allows you to run multiple PC-based operating systems simultaneously on one workstation, providing a safety net to maintain compatibility with legacy applications while you migrate to a new operating system. It also saves reconfiguration time, so your support, development, and training staff can work more efficiently.

If ubuntu 8.10 hangs during the installation

When I tried to install ubuntu 8.10 under virtual PC 2007, as soon as I was selecting to start the installation, a log trace was displayed on screen and the system hanged.
The last line of log was "end trace".
If you have a similar problem:
- restart
- Select a Language,
- Press F4 and select Safe Graphics Mode
- Press F6. A line with command line options will appear.
Add to this line:
noreplace-paravirt vga=771 i8042.noloop clock=pit
and press Enter.

The installation will pass the problematic point and continue with a blank screen that will remain for a long time. You should be able to see that the installation is working though the flashing CD and Disk icons of virtual PC.

Good luck!
