I have a dual boot system right now with Vista HP 32 and Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10. I want to run some vertical market tax programs in Linux via a Virtual Machine. I have installed VMware server in Ubuntu and that much appears to be ok. When I power on the 'Vista' VM it asks for an OS installation disk (Vista). Do I need to reinstall this on the virtual disk or is there some other way of setting this up since Vista is already on the machine? I also have a copy of XP pro....I wonder if I have to install another OS if I should use XP instead for better compatibility?
thanks in advance for any enlightenment and opinions.
