Network can't work

Virtual PC


  • 1. Can virtual machines be in a differnet subnet from the host?
    Folks, I have installed a new NT4 virtual machine on a Win2K host and specified a static IP address in a different subnet from the host. When I start up the virtual machine, I can't seem to access the network ( requests time out ). If I change the IP address to the same subnet as the host, it works! Is that a requirement of the product?? This is in a lab environment so I really want to have virtual machines in different subnets to test scenarios in our production environment. Does anyone know if the virtual machines have to be in the same subnet as the host when using the host NIC in the Networking option?? I haven't been able to find anything definitive in the documentation. Thanks, Paul.
  • 2. Installing Linux Red Hat 9
    Could someone explain why it takes 1.5 to 2 Hrs to Install, When it only takes about 15 to 20 Min at Dos. Also during the install it asks me to select a Monitor, now my Exact Monitor Model is not in their List so I chose the Highlighted One ( Unprobed ). And used the Default 800x600. VPC Pops up and tells me that I can't use Full Screen Mode for this Selection and Defaults to Normal Screen Mode. Thats Fine but when the Install Completes and Linux Loads, I End up with some Start Up Screen which is Totally Unreadable. There Appears to be nothing I can do to make it Ledgible and I have waisted 2 Hrs and have to start again.
  • 3. Compacting a VPC Virtual Hard Disk - Need Utility to Zero Disk First
    In the help files for VPC 2004 it makes several mentions of a disk utility that must be run to see any benefits to using Virtual Hard Disk Compaction as follows: o You must run a disk utility program to zero the deleted data before using the compact option. o Before compacting the disk, we recommend that you use a disk utility to zero out blank space, which should result in a smaller compacted virtual hard disk. o Before you perform this procedure, we recommend that you delete unwanted files and then use a third-party disk utility to zero out the blank spaces. So now my questions: Is there a reliable / safe / free utility that does this? Has anyone every seen a reduction in size of Virtual Disk (.vhd) file? Thank in advance for sharing your experience. Rod
  • 4. x86 processor compatibility
    I have passed a thorough test suit to check how Virtual PC processor is compatible with an original one (Intel Pentium-4). Whom I can write to discuss the results? I was in correspodence with Jon Garber a year ago, probably I can get his new e-mail? Thank you in advance!
  • 5. Question VPC2004
    Hi I am a previous user of connetix virtual PC however I am looking into purchasing Microsoft Virtual PC 2004. I have been told by the software company that I purchase from that VPC2004 will not work in windows xp home and that it only works in Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional, and Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. Does anyone here know if it will work with no problems in a system running xp home. Thanks Michelle

Network can't work

I use Virtual PC to install Win 2000 Pro and Win XP.
These has a same problem.

After I install these 2 OS, they shows that network card(Intel 81140)is not 
install correctly. And I re-install it, the problem is occurs.
But I can use that LAN card at host computer to internet through PPPOE.
How to solve it?

I use Asus P4P800-X and on-board Lan card Realtek 8139.
I try to do that in other PC with same class LAN Card. That is OK.

Intel 21140 is correct.

What happens if you try to use shared networking?

I try to test before, I find a special case.

If I install Visual Studio 2003.Net then install VPC, VPC can work normally.
But if I install VPC first, then network in VPC can't work.
