Has anyone downloaded Microsoft Virtual PC to their Vista 64 bit, then tried running PF in the Virtual PC with XP loaded? Does running in the Virtual mode give you the same performace as if you were running an XP machine for gaming?
Thanks

The host OS on a Virtual PC can not share the graphics card, the Virtual PC can only emulate a basic 64mb card, the only games you could play are old ones.

If you want to run multiple Operating Systems, you should take a good look at HyperOS 2008.

Information on it here: http://www.hyperossystems.co.uk/

There is also a good Users Forum here: http://www.hyperosforum.co.uk/

I've been using it for years starting with HOS 20002.

It will allow you to run up to 22 seperate installs of XP, XP x64, Vista, and Vista x64 in any combination.
