I'm determined to keep XP around...forever !!! Background=> I am moving mostly to Linux for the sake of h/w compatibility, but have windows apps that I still need to use. Tried VirtualBox on Linux and it was alot of trouble for me, but VMWare Player worked great. I also wanted to use a VM in XP of a stripped down XP for testing things. Of all the options I treid I found that an older version of VirtualPC worked really well for that. But I also found that doing P2V to make a VM can be a bit sticky even if the HDD controller is set right. Any suggestions for favourite/best P2V tool for XP ?? Thanks.
