    I'm not that savvy on virtual machines but AFAIK, VMware is the best solution for this task. I use it often and can tell you it runs smoothly and flawlessly, last version.

    Kelogo, I may be wrong here but as regards to SLP 1.0 are you not limited with VirtualBox i,e, say dell for example non standard DMI areas ?

    Sure, you are limited to anything that's actually valid DMI/SMBios data. That doesn't invalidate my point about VirtualBox's configuration options being superior to VMware.

    By the way, the Dell string is not in a "non-standard DMI area". There is no such thing. The location of the Dell string is simply outside valid DMI area.

    Also, VirtualBox is less than 100MB, VMWare is over 400MB.

    I think Virtual box is much better than vmware.

    Fair enough kelorgo, I may have worded it wrong as regards to Dell SLP 1.0 memory addresses :)

    VMware Workstation is expensive (if you don't know where to look. wink-wink nod-nod nudge-nudge)
    VMware Workstation recognizes WiFi without any any configuration. Just by coincidence, I had to install VirtualBox today. (Came across a VB image file I needed to run). VB would only see a NAT ethernet, which in my case was unplugged. Had to create a bridged network, tying the NAT to the WiFi. After that, all good. Worked great.
