Virtual PC_2007
 
Page 39, "Install the Operating System" I am getting a DHCP... message and cannot install Windows Server 2003 Enterprise SP2 DVD or ISO image. I have installed the loopback adapter on the host, set its TCP/IP properties and added it to the Virtual PC. Any ideas?

Does the DHCP message appear on the host, or on the client during the OS install? If you can, please provide the full text of the message. The host should still have it's original internet connection settings, and the loopback adapter will be an additional connection.

If the DHCP message appears on the virtual client during the OS install, then specify the IP address rather than using DHCP which assigns it automatically. Choose an address in the same IP range as the host (pp. 36-37).

Note that you can create and configure the client VPC's loopback adapter after the OS is installed. It's preferable to do it before making the machine a domain controller if only to save the steps and risk of changing the IP address afterwards.

Cheers,
