Berikut ini adalah isi ebook yang mencakup tutorial penggunaan Microsoft Virtual PC pada Windows 7:
A. Info for existing users of Microsoft Virtual PC include:
These are the new features in Windows Virtual PC:
• Windows Virtual PC is supported only on Windows 7 host.
• USB 2.0 support in virtual machines (“VM”).
• Windows XP Mode ‐ Virtualized applications running in a VM run seamlessly on
Windows 7 desktop as if they were native Windows 7.
• Auto publishing of virtualized applications running in a VM to Windows 7.
• Multithreading‐ Each VM runs in its own thread.
• Support for higher resolution, support for Direct X in Windows 7 & Windows
• Integrated with Windows 7 Explorer shell and Super Bar features.
• Simplified UI.
• Support for DEP/NX in VMs.
• Support for EPT/NPT for VMs.
B. Set up and Install
a.Special Hardware requirement
• Windows Virtual PC requires a CPU with the Intel® Virtualization Technology or AMD‐V®
feature turned on (enabled in the BIOS). Most modern systems ship with virtualization
extensions disabled in the BIOS. You must enable these extensions, and the instructions
to enable virtualization differ depending on the hardware vendor. AMD's virtualization
is referred to as AMD‐V®; Intel's virtualization is called Intel® VT. In addition you need to
disable TXT (Trusted execution technology in BIOS).
b. How to enable processor virtualization extension
This is done in the system BIOS. Because each OEM has a different BIOS layout, there
are no standard steps to enable processor virtualization extensions in the BIOS ; it is
c. Installation of Integration Components (ICs)
• “Integration Components” run inside the guest VM and communicate directly with
the operating system on the host computer thereby enabling smoother user
Integration Components are set of binaries that improve the VM experience. For
example , you can move the mouse from between guest and host applications; it
also enables features like drive sharing, printer redirection, clipboard sharing and
smart card sharing.
C. Windows XP mode
Windows XP Mode is a pre‐activated copy of Windows XP SP3 in VHD file format. For
licensed users of Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate or Enterprise editions, Virtual
Windows XP makes it easier for users to adopt Windows Virtual PC as a solution for
application compatibility. To make the user experience easier, a “sysprepped” and
compressed Windows XP SP3 VHD is available from the Download Center
at www.microsoft.com. The VHD simplifies installation and setup of Windows XP Mode
with minimum user intervention.
D. Virtual Application
Virtual application publishing
“Virtual application” as used here refers to an application installed within a VM that can run in a seamless way as if the application were installed on the host computer’s operating system. The user would not necessarily be aware of the existence of
underlying VM on which the application is running.
Links to the virtual application get published to the start menu of Windows 7. Filesresiding on Windows 7 host computer get associated with these remote applications.
The published Virtual applications are sometimes referred to as “RAIL‐ed” applications. RAIL stands for “remote application integrated locally.”
The user can publish many applications in a VM. The launching of the first virtual
application in a VM takes longer due to the time needed to start and login to the VM.
E.Networking in VMs
Network options available in VM
In virtual machine settings, you can specify up to four (4) emulated
adapters. You can assign each emulated adapter card to any netw
installed on the physical computer. The various adapter options are:
• Not connected: With this option, networking is not available in VM.
• Internal Network: This option provides networking between VMs on
• Shared Networking (NAT): This is a virtual NAT (network address tra
that allows the virtual machine to leverage the external TCP/IP
connected to the Windows 7 host. This is very useful if you are
moving your computer between different network configurations.
NAT performance is not as good as that of Bridged mode.
• Network Adapter on host: (Note‐This option appears as Name of a
the drop down). This is also known as Bridged mode. When this
selected, the virtual machine is connected directly to the selected
connection of the Windows 7 host. The virtual machine will ap
behave like a separate physical computer on the same network
system has wireless adapter, its name will appear in dropdown list.
F.VM Creation & Management
Change Settings of the Virtual Machine
Change the RAM allotted to virtual machine
Restart option is missing from Start menu in VM. How do I restart?
Entering Pre‐Boot environment (BIOS screen/network boot)
Shutdown down a VM
PXE installation of OS in a VM
I noticed that I am unable to resize or go to full screen in a Windows XP VM. Why?
Renaming a VM
Moving a VMC, VHD or VMCX file
Deleting a VMC, VMCX or VHD file
Why do I need to provide my logon credentials when I resize VM window?
I have added a non‐admin user to the VM. But the new user cannot login in to the VM.Why?
Adding additional disks in VM
