    :confused: System: AMD 64 3000+ 2GB Ram 160GB HD Win XP Pro. I have Vista
    RC1 running correctly in MS Virtual PC. I am trying to upgrade to Vista Business. My Vista Bus U/G copy is on 4 CD's, not a DVD! I tried to upgrade my main XP first, but after nearly completing, (read all 4 CD's OK) the system crashed, so I used Ghost to restore XP. Now trying to UG inside Virtual PC 2007. All goes well, untill it asks for CD number 2. When I click OK after inserting the CD it just continues to ask for the CD No. 2. I have sucessfully disabled Autorun and Autoplay (from the registry), but still have the problem. It eventially gives an error cade 0x000010 and tells me to restart the installation. Would love to get some help on this ! Many thanks, Errol Greer.

    Problem solved ! For each CD I had to click on the CD tab and tell it AGAIN to use my F drive (the DVD). It seems that it clears the link to the physical drive between loading CDs.

    Interesting, I haven't tried loading multiple CD installs yet, but that's good to know. :)
