View Full Version : [ubuntu] Microsoft VPC

October 14th, 2008, 09:08 AM
I'm thinking about switching to Ubuntu (possibly when the new version is released) and I have 8.04 desktop edition burned onto a disk, and I tried to install it on Microsoft VPC to check Ubuntu out and I get a error.


This happens when I try to install Ubuntu.
Anyone know how to fix this? :(

Personally, I hadn't tried Ubuntu on M$ VPC. But here's a link from Ubuntu Community on How To - Configure Ubuntu for Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToConfigureUbuntuForMicrosoftVirtualPC2004). The instructions on that link should work on the version of VPC you're using.

Try adding noreplace-paravirt as a boot option
