    Here is a guide here. This will work the same for Vista in a Windows 7 host. Remember aero will not work in a virtual system though. You will also need a copy of Windows Vista

    When you get to step 12, if you do not have Vista burnt to disk and have the iso instead click on CD at the top of the window and click Capture ISO. Point it to the iso and Vista will install from there.

    Didnt it? I just downloaded it and went through those steps to make sure it was for you before I posted. Worked fine on my end, well got as far as choosing partition for Vista but stopped it there.

    Have you got the latest Virtual PC? Im running the RC x64 version of Windows 7
