    If the machine the vm is loaded on came with an oem licence does that count?

    Since EES includes Software Assurance, you are able to run upto four Windows VMs locally on each PC/Mac since virtualization use rights are included.

    I assume that you are already licensed for "Windows Enterprise Upgrade" organization-wide under your EES agreement and that each PC has a qualifying base license (usually the OEM Windows license the PC came with)?

    As long as your licensed I don't think you'll have any problems as it would be the same as installing it onto a machine anyway wouldn't it ?

    Could this be of use in this scenario ?

    In previous posts @Steve21 and others talked about mapping a drive to the users home drive using shared folders.
    I have created my VM with no network card installed. I use the Shared folders setting to map it to the hosts H drive but when I look in the VM it doesn't get mapped. I have ticked Auto-Mount.
    Where am I going wrong?

    You need to install the guest additions in the VM.

    Aye ensure you got additions installed, and what OS are you running as the VM? Windows? As I'm using Ubuntu had to mount the share etc.

    I have vbox all set up now with Win7 as the VM- Thanks to all the tips on here.
    Only issue I have is that as the VBOX loads it offers "Press F12 to select boot device".
    How can I remove this option?

    Im more a VMWare guy but I would expect there would be a virtual bios where you can change the boot order.

    Its not the boot order I want to change its the actual option. I don't want the "Press F12 to select boot device" to appear. Students will be tempted to press it. I tried and pressing F12 and then Lan as the boot device it tries to pxe boot but then halts and locks up the vbox session. Students then have no option but to log out and in again.

    @synaesthesia - Any ideas how to remove the "F12 to select boot device" option when virtualbox is starting up?
