    Um, more info please?

    have you ever used VirtualPC on this system before?
    Is this an IntelMac or PPC Mac?
    What OS are you using?
    What version of VirtualPC are you using?
    Have you tried either Parallels or Fusion?

    It is my understanding that VPC is not Leopard compatible. I don't know if anyone has managed to actually get it working, though....

    it runs and does exactly what the directions say it will do..... gets to where it says there is no operating system installed yet.. and wants me to install windows. but it wont load the disk and its getting frustrating ;[

    Pop the Windows CD into your Mac, go into Virtual PC and select Capture CD from the Drives menu, then from the PC menu select Reset. Does that do it?

    does VPC need the windows disc it came with to work, or does any copy of XP work with it?
