This is frustrating. You would think that Microsoft products would work well with Microsoft products. I am trying my hardest to remain a fan but I am wasting more time just geting started while working through issues.

I am running Windows 2008 Server and Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 Enterprise Edition.

I had to go through a group policy klludge just to get Virtual Server to install on Windows 2008.

Now that it is installed, I decided to create one virtual machine. I started it and it is at the dos prompt. I cannot kill the process. The only way to stop the firstual machine is to turn off virtual server services or just reboot. What's up with that?

I am about ready to jump ship. I wonder if running VS on W2k8 has anything to do with this. Anyway, is there some way to make this fricken thing run like it is supposed to?
Please advise.
