    hi,
    had an earlier problem with XP virtual machine.
    now i finally got to the XP setup part, Windows freezes after a minute of "preparing XP vertual machine for first use"
    keyboard and mouse stop working, can only reboot by forcing shutdown.

    win7 ultimate 64
    dell inspiron 1526

    thanks,
    itai

    What do you virtualize with, XP-mode, Micr. Virt. PC, VMPlayer/ware, Virtual Box ? What is your host PC toatal amount of system memory and how much memory do you set for the virtual machine ?
