Ubuntu – Ubuntu on Microsoft Virtual PC


Do you have tips or a guide how to install Ubuntu in Microsoft Virtual PC?

I have found some (older) information, but I wonder if this is still valid. And it looks very "unfriendly".

Best Answer

You can (it's much like anything else: use the ISO as the CD drive, boot from CD, install, done) but the support is lacking somewhat. Sound only occasionally works and the performance is pretty awful (in my experience).

You'd do a lot better to download VirtualBox (free) or VMWare Workstation (not free) and use that instead.
