Cannot install Win 2k8 R2 Server x64 in Win 7

I get this message http://www.chicagotech.net/virtualization/vmissue3.htm

 

At first I got slick and installed VPC even though I had Win 7 Home Premium OEM. But, I got that error. (Yes SVM is enabled, latest bios)

So thought well I did not have pro. I did not wanna use my last key, but I upgraded it to Pro Upgrade via Windows Anytime using the PID I got from Win 24/7.

Same issue.

 

Any ideas?

 

G555

 

School uses Microsoft VPC so I wanna stay with that and not VMWare Player. (Which works fine).

 

Thank you,

Eric Vogel

What version of Microsoft Virtual PC did you installed? 32 or 64 bits?

MSFT VPC? Yes, 64 bit.

 

For future refernce could you please use something else or spell it out., MVP means alot of things like Microsoft MVP, a Sports Player MVP. googling to find the asnwer is impossible.

I am using the ISO for Windows Server Enterprise 2008 R2 x64.

 

I am tring to do a clean install from that iso.

 

I have yet to try the one we created at work. But I wanted to do a clean install.

OK, I see that we don't understand.

 

If you are using Windows 7 like a base OS (for running a Virtual Machine like Virtual PC), you must to use the latest version of Virtual PC.

 

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/

 

It only works on Premium and Ultimate version (according to that page).

 

If you used an old Virtual PC version, maybe i't won't work for you.

 

Also, you can try VMWare or VirtualBox (both are compatible with Windows 7). Then you can install W2K8 R2 Server virtualized.

Per your other post you have a G555, Have you enabled virtualization in the BIOS yet? Windows Virtual PC needs to have that enabled. Only asking due to it is off by default.

Thanks someone else figured it out. yes that is enabled in bios. Turns out Win 7 VPC is 32-bit only so you cannot install 64bit. I tried moving the VM and it broke. I am now using VMPlayer. Just need the non R2 64bit build. I will try to get a bit of it today.
