Automatically booting Virtual PC

I am running Vista Business, and on this machine I have Virtual PC running with Server 2003. I would like to have the Virtual PC (Server2003) boot everytime the vista machine boots.

Right now I have to log onto the Vista machine and start Server 2003 on the Virtal PC.

Is there any way to start Server 2003 automatically when vista boots without logging on and starting Virtual PC

If you want the virtual machine to startup without logging in to any user, you'll need to start the virtualization processor as a service.   Although Virtual PC can't run as a service, the free Virtual Server can:

Although you can't run Virtual PC as a service, you can automatically start a virtual PC (e.g. Server 2003) by simply including a link to the .VMC file in your Startup folder.   This will automatically invoke Virtual PC and start the virtual machine.
