    First of all, which version of Virtual PC did you buy, some versions come with a copy of Windows, some do not. If you have the version without Windows, then you need to supply your own copy of Windows. If you have the version that does include Windows, then check the instructions on how to install Windows on Virtual PC. It may involve burning a CD with the Windows installer.
