Hello, and welcome to Geeks To Go.
Virtual machine does not work with Vista home premium.
And I would not post my E-mail address.

The Virtual PC application requires a 400 MHz Pentium-compatible processor (1.0 GHz or faster recommended), and requires approximately 20 MB of disk space. It runs on Windows Vista Business, Windows Vista Enterprise, Windows Vista Ultimate, Windows XP Professional, or Windows XP Tablet PC Edition.

I can only go by what Microsoft has published.
If you are using it on Home premium, and it does not work correctly, please follow the purple link I provided in post #2.
We provide help in the forum, we do not E-mail support.

can you be more descriptive of the error or maybe post a screen shot? Does it happen when you load a vhd or when you first launch the program?

found this to be an excellent source of info regarding virtual pc/server: http://blogs.msdn.co...c...n vista&p=1

do you have an OS cd in the cd drive and have captured the drive in VPC? If it doesn't detect a bootabl cd, it will try and do a PXE boot (boot from ethernet).

you can point to an iso file, if you have one available. you don't have to burn it, as long as you can have access to it.

Do you have an iso? do you know what an iso is? is your pc on "the network"

download the vhd listed here: http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en
vhd stands for Virtual hard disk.

Once you have completed the download, double-click file to expand the VHD file. Start Virtual PC and create a new VPC, and point to the files you just expanded.

You can now play around and see how VPC works.

Microsoft also has a vista vhd, but it expires in 30 days and requires registering.
