Virtual PC hangs after 1st reboot during windows server 2003 install. I get through the DOS portion of the install, and when the system reboots to load wibdows and continue the install it just hangs. If i Leave the ISO/CD image mounted, it hangs at the boot from CD prompt. If i unmount the ISO it just hangs during the boot process after the POST. Any ideas?

Virtual Disk is 10 Gb primary, and 2 - 6 Gb virtual disks. There is 1 Gb of RAM. The disks are fixed size.

Ok, that rules them out.

I'd say this sounds like a mass storage driver issue, but in a VM that shouldn't be the case.

I'm thinking about what else this might be.

I found the issue here and am closing the question. The virtual baremetal install i was doing did not function if the VPC disks were dynamic. I had to change the disks to =/> than the original disk and set them as fixed disks
