Disk2VHD image vs a new XP mode virtual pc

Hi all,

I am trying to resolve a strange virtual pc issue.

I made an image of an xp system using DISK2VHD. I then loaded windows 7 pro onto the same box, using a new hard drive. Loaded windows virtual pc and ran the VHD I had created of the xp system.

Well it works but for a couple of strange things. It won't go full screen, the mouse won't move in or out of the virtual window, and cut and paste does not work.

So I got virtual pc to create a new xp mode pc, which it did, and everything works fine.

So is there a way I can make the DISK2VHD image work the same as a freshly created VHD session.


Thanks.

This looks like it's for VPC 2007. The Virtual PC that comes with Windows 7 pro doesn't appear to support additions...or I'm missing it...as none of the options to install it are there...

Feedback needed. The howto shows how the so-called "Integration Components" are installed.
