    I'm installing stuff from my network drive, but it's behaving like it is actually connected to a network rather than it physically being the same computer, like from hard drive to hard drive install.

    I'll try to explain better in future

    In Windows XP compatibility mode in Windows 7 hard drives on your computer show as network drives. The Windows Virtual PC feels like I'm remotely controlling an XP computer as transfers to and from the drives are slow. I'm not using any network or remote control in Windows XP compatibility mode (Virtual PC).

    It was maybe the compatibility mode description at semi fault as The way you are running it is not really xp compatibility mode surely as that would be right click on choose properties and tick box to run under that mode.

    From what you describe now it's windows xp mode using virtualization tech in windows 7 and from your enabled CPU.

    But it's slow and draggy > ?

    How much memory ?

    Never ran any in that mode yet might fire up one ot the laptops that supports it. see what gives

    this vm sw also requires hardware support to run in hardware, make sure your cpu is compatible as well.

    Don't know read some confusing stuff on someone's website that because I've got a full moped licence my CBT is always valid, another bit on it said CBT 2yrs. If I was riding a moped I could understand not having to take a CBT again, but I don't they don't know that. :thinking: confused. To be safe I'm going to take the test in a year or less anyway.
