XP installs on Virtual PC 5 without much bother. It is, however, agonizingly slow... at least under Mac OS X. (Which is certainly not an XP-only problem) However, I don't believe Connectix has a OS Pack that includes Windows XP, so it's a manual install. If you are intent on doing this, though, I would strongly recommend getting Connectix' Windows 2000 pack and using an XP upgrade on it. This will put all the additions and tweaked drivers in there. (the wide screen mode for the G4 powerbooks and Cinema displays, though, don't seem to survive the upgrade. After the upgrade my PBG4 now thinks "full screen" is 1024x768. I haven't cared enough to see if I can fix that.) It's probably wiser to let Connectix do their own XP pack before making the jump. XP doesn't offer enough "new" stuff to make the switch from 2000 worth the manual hassle.Originally posted by eyelikeart
