    Would any of you help me install "New" VHD in Virtual PC 7?

    Would any of you please tell me how to install a slimmed-down version of Windows (ie: "TinyXP" or "XPLite") into Virtual PC 7.0.2? I don't like the default version of the Windows OS/VHD ("Windows XP Professional.vhd.002"), which came with VPC7 (on Disk 2) because it has a lot of programs that I'll never need to use. It's packed with bloat-ware (ie: unnecessary PC programs; PC games, and spyware).

    If any of you would: please give me step-by-step instructions on how to install a small version of a Windows OS (like TinyXP or XP Lite) into Virtual PC 7.0.2 so I can put a new virtual hard-disk (VHD)in the "PC List" in my VPC emulator.

    have you not considered a linux virtual machine. Both Suse and Redhat will run on Virtual PC 2007.

    other wise, there are a few "windows lite" and windows look alikes available.

    Why not use the xp pro you have and just remove the bloatware?
