How To Build A Virtual PC: The VHD - Part 1

The first thing you'll see when you start VPC 2007 is this screen. From here, click "New..." This brings up the Welcome screen.

From here, click "Next"

You'll see three options - since this How To is all about making a new Virtual PC quickly and painlessly, we're going to pick "Use default settings to create a virtual machine", and leave the other options alone (for now!).

Now, you'll need to give your Virtual PC a name. In this case, I've decided to name my machine "Win 7 VS SQL 2008".

Click Finish to open the settings screen.

Congratulations! You now have a Virtual PC! Woohoo for you! :)
