Yes that's right, I installed Virtual PC using my old Windows 2000 disk. That worked fine but then I ran into problems patching it with all the latest updates. You have to upgrade the OS to Service Pack 4 (for Win 2000) or SP2 if using XP before you can install the virtual machine additions so that you can fully resize the screen etc. I tried to download and install the 'express' version of Windows 2000 SP4 from Windows Update but it kept failing - not only did it crash and corrupt my Virtual PC but also caused my first kernel panic. After I restarted my Mac I couldn't use Virtual PC - kept getting BSOD and perpetual boot cycle so had to delete it and start from scratch. Eventually got it working by downloading the other version of SP4 - I think it's called 'network' installation. So my advice to anyone installing VPC with Win 2000 is to NOT use the express install of SP4. Then it works fine, but yes it's painfully slow. I just need it to run certain work-related software.mad jew said:I'm pretty sure you can simply install from a regular Windows install disk but you must have your own licence for that copy.
No problem. It is against forum rules to talk about downloading pirated programs and stuff (keeps MacRumors legal-free)alone_together said:I did install it from a CD, I just edited my post to make it clearer. Thanks for the help.
Yes, most palms will sync with osx. Sony Clie's however, are not compatible with macs unless you run a third party app like missing sync.alone_together said:I understand, thanks for the link. I'll check it out. I was reading your quote and I'm just curious. Would a Palm work well with a Mac?
