I want to install an older OS on Virtual PC. It says it will format my hard drive. Does it format my physical hard drive, or the virtual one? I don't wanna loose my data.

Short answer: it formats the virtual drive you have setup.

That helped me. I have one more question. It says to press CTRL-ALT-DEL and when it do, it does it on my pc, not the virtual one. IS there a way to fix that?

Tip:
To log on, instead of pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL on the keyboard (which will just bring up the Windows Security dialog box on your host OS), click the Action menu at the top of the VPC window and select Ctrl+Alt+Del there.
