Installation of Windows on Visual PC 2007

Hey this is my first time using Microsoft answers, Ok, I need to know how to install Windows on Visual PC where can I get the OS it's all


You buy the operating system to a virtual machine as you would for a physical machine that does not have an operating system. You can also buy the full version of the operating system, unless you are the owner of the eligible support for a version upgrade (and eligible media are not installed on a system); the virtual machine is almost like having another computer - it is inside a computer!

Microsoft Store

If you are just experimenting with Virtual PC 2007 might interest you in trial of Microsoft's Windows 7 Enterprise 90 days for computer scientists. It is only valid for a 90 day evaluation, it is the full version.

Windows 7 Enterprise 90 - day Trial

BTW - for Virtual PC 2007 you want the 32-bit version (x 86) (Virtual PC 2007 cannot run x 64 version).

I hope this helps.

  • Transfer of Windows XP Professional & Office 2007 to the new PC

    I bought my current PC with Windows XP Professional & Office 2007 already installed so no CD or the key provided, and the company I bought to is no longer in business so no help there.

    I bought a new PC without OS and I'm looking for a way in which I can transfer my operating system existing Windows XP and Office Suite for my new PC, or I have to buy a new version of these two which, as I've already paid for them once, seems a little unfair.


    You can't transfer legally of the operating system (Windows XP Pro) because the license for your OEM (preinstalled) version is valid only for the computer on which it was initially installed.

    However, you should be able to transfer Office 2007.  Use a tool such as Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder to determine the CD key for your Microsoft Office installation and then ask Microsoft for a new CD.  See

  • Installation service Windows Vista stop working

    I'm running a Dell XPS ONE 2010 with Vista Home Premium SP2 2009.  About two years ago, I noticed that Windows Installer has stop working and I could not install Microsoft programs or uninstall most programs, was able to load 3rd programs like Turbotax, but could not uninstall them.  I bought a Microsoft Expression Web software and had to pay MS $100 to load.  MS uninstalled Office 2007, cleaned Windows, install Expression Web and reinstalled Office 2007.  When Ms. Load Expression Web, they advised me to use Revo Uninstaller which may be required to work. because the normal MS uninstaller does not work I can not install any MS programs like the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor or other software from Ms.  When installed MS Expression Web, they said that they could not fix the failure of the installer without a custom reinstall of Vista, I chose not to.  Strangely, the MS Windows updates work fine.

    In the last three months, I have read and tried all of the suggestions of MS to fix this problem without success.  The installation failure message is "the Windows Installer Service could not be accessed.  This can occur if Windows Installer is not correctly installed... »

    Now I want to install new software to create a web site, but it will not be installed.  I bought the Windows 7 Upgrade Home Premium package but it fails with the message of my computer is not compatible with Windows 7.  I suspect that the upgrade fails because the installation Service fails.
    I don't want to do a custom installation of Windows 7 because of the work required to reinstall all my software.

  • Mac lost during the installation of windows

    When installing windows on a MAC, I deleted my partition mac completely and I am now left with windows 7 to my mac book air. Y at - it an option to install mac, I don't mind losing the windows partition

    Hello smarthala,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    I see that you deleted by mistake your Mac partition during the installation of Windows. The partition itself deleted or was it the Mac OS that has been erased, leaving an empty partition?

    If the latter, you can reinstall OS X from OS X Recovery. See this article for how that should be done: On OS X Recovery
    Otherwise, you can use Internet recovery (Command-Option-R, as opposed to the command-R) to repartition the entire hard drive and install the version of Mac OS X provided on your Mac. Who is finished, you can upgrade to El Capitan via the App Store > bought.

    Best regards.

  • Bootcamp: Installation of Windows 10 USB cannot find bootcamp partition

  • delete the partition after a failed installation of windows 10

    Hello world

    How is it possible to delete partitions, if in disk utility, there is no possibility to click on the '-' key?

    So I made a failure (several) attempts to install windows 10 on my new iMAC.

    I could download an ISO of windows and start the bootcamp assistant.

    In the last attempt of last night, I selected the bootcamp in windows installation partition, however, installing windows said it was impossible to read the hard drive.

    I then re-formatted this partition (BOOTCAMP) in the installation of windows, and after that, still could not read.

    Then, I deleted the bootcamp partition in windows and re-created a partition on "unallocated space" in the windows installation.

    Installing windows 10 still wouldn't move forward then I've bailed out and went back to OS X with the hope of turning it back on (again) by deleting partitions.

    I was unable to delete the Mac partition.

    Then, I deleted this partition (the one original bootcamp) and reformatted as OS x journaled. At least now, I can see the Partition.

    However in Diskutil, I was then impossible to delete this Partition. There is also a small partition 16 MB that cannot be erased.

    Wizard bootcamp will be past a pop up station: the startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition.

    So I will now try to delete these partitions (the boy and the training camp original one) merge into the original and give then installing bootcamp, another go when I have a lot of energy!

    any help would be appreciated. I'm a little cautious to use Terminal command lines for fear of ruining my new computer.



    1. your iMac has a Fusion drive?

    2. don't mix to disk utility and Wizard of BC. They can lead to a host of issues.

    3. If you do not typos in the Terminal, they provide much more rich in detail. You have a Time Machine backup, put in place?

    4 can you post the output of the following Terminal commands?
