I just arrived in Berlin. The Developer Days 2004 will start tomorrow. I will hold the XPSP2 talk there and some of my demos are leveraging Virtual PC. It is my first time to demo on VPC images. I never had the hardware to run it smoothly. But with my stress tested external hdd performance is much better. Seperation of OS and VPC images on different drives make a huge difference. One important lesson I have learned when duplicating images. Don’t forget to change your SID! If you don’t do it you get weird behaviors when connecting systems using the same SID. I used NewSID from SysInternals to change that. It works pretty well!
