    Is it possible to run XP 64 and Vista 64 under Virtual PC? I tried to boot
    Vista 64 setup DVD under Virtual machine 2007 RC and setup said:

    "Attempting to load a 64-bit application, however this CPU is not compatible
    with 64-bit mode"

    I assume they mean emulated CPU, b/c my real CPU definitely supports 64 bit
    extension, I have XP 64 and Vista 64 installed on my PC natively.

    Virtual PC does not support 64 bit guests.

  3. 32bit guests only in VPC 2007 and Virtual Server.

  4. No, you can't run 64-bit guests in either Virtual PC or Virtual Server. You
    can, however, run them in VMWare Workstation or VMWare Server, assuming you
    have a processor that is supported for 64bit guests.
