I want to get my virtual server instances in MS VS '05 to just start automatically with the host OS.  There is an option for it, but it is greyed out and I cannot change it.

    The machine needs to be shut down for this change, and you need to specify a user account (tick the checkbox under "Start the virtual machine using the following account") that has permissions to start this machine.
