Other than Microsoft Virtual PC 2007

Apr 24, 2008 at 7:54 PM
Hi,

Can we try some other Virtual Machine software, say, VMWare, other than Microsoft Virtual PC to boot the built "kernel.dmp" image?
Do you think this will work?

Any suggestions?

Hi Prudhvi. Although we relied on Virtual PC during development and have not tested our system for compatibility with the virtual hardware exposed by VMWare, I wouldn't be surprised if it worked anyway, since we boot correctly on many native platforms and VMWare simulates such a platform. Please try it and let me know if you encounter any problems. Good luck.
