Cool VirtualBox
Hi there everyone.

Recently I've been having a 32 bit/ 64 bit conflict. It was accessory hardware related. [Please don't ask what it was, search for my other posts to find out].

So, I found a way around it, but I am very confused on how to do it. I tried to read through the tutorials, however I just don't know where to start.

The software is VirtualBox (freeware, open source, virtual machine program). I want to run a Windows 2000 Pro as a virtual machine on my Windows 7 laptop.

I need to know how to get my Windows 2000 from my old useless computer to a form (bootdisc?) that would be recognized when I start my virtual machine.

I have less than 4GB of used space on the system partition of that computer, so it can fit on a DVD if needed.

So, how do I take the OS from my old computer and put it on a bootable media so I can use it as a virtual machine?

Thanks in advanced, let me know if you need more info.
