Thread: Virtual PC Issues
07-22-2005, 02:10 PM #1macintGuestVirtual PC Issues
I'm about to install Virtual PC on my Mac OSX and I just had a few questions.
Does installing the Virtual PC software affect my operating system, does it create a separate partition and are there any other issues anyone knows about.
I just want to be sure so I don't have any proplems with my computer.

It doesn't have any negative effects your current OS... except of course to slow your machine down some when running it.... like any program would.
It creates a single file on your harddrive that it uses for it's "partition" data. So no... it won't effect your harddrives partitions.
VPC itself does run extremely slow even on high end machines so I have never found it to be to terribly usefull. Most people recommend just spending a little extra money and getting a cheap PC. The performance is much better and the price isn't much different."If you had a friend who was a tightrope walker, and you were walking down a sidewalk, and he fell, that would be completely unacceptable." -Mitch Hedberg
