Hello. I have an issue that may intrigue the best of EE experts here. Maybe this issue has been addressed before here on Experts Exchange.
I know you have to install Windows Virtual PC program prior to the installation of the Windows XP Mode on applicable Windows 7 operating systems. I understand these are separate installations in an orderly installation process to have a virtual Windows XP on applicable Windows 7 operating systems.
Now, I was wondering if one can have a copy of Windows Vista or even another copy of Windows 7 placed on Windows 7 where the copy of either Windows Vista or Windows 7 could run virtual in nature? Basically, using a copy of Windows Vista or even another copy of Windows 7 as an alternate to Windows XP (Professional) Mode virtual version as the established virtual operating system on Windows 7 instead?
First, I would NEED TO KNOW if a 'real' legit copy of Windows Vista or Windows 7 can be used with Windows Virtual PC in lieu of Windows XP Mode virtual version you can download from the Microsoft website?
If so, how can this be done?
Second, if a 'real' legit copy of Windows Vista or Windows 7 CANNOT be used in conjunction with Windows Virtual PC on Windows 7; IS THERE ANOTHER THIRD PARTY PROGRAM INSTALLER (possible virtual in nature similar to Windows Virtual PC) that would allow 'real' legit copy of Windows Vista or Windows 7 to coexist with Windows 7?
If so, again, how could this be done?
Please provide your own detailed facts, suggestions, hints, and tips; and/or the best possible well written, detailed and documented website links.
