Although I succeeded in getting the Windows ME boot disk, and even WinME
itself, running in Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, I've had no such luck with Sun
Upon startup with my WinME boot disk, as usual, I chose the following:
2. Start computer with CD-ROM support.
Enter a choice: 2
Then I got the following:
This driver is provided by Oak Technology, Inc..
OTI-91X ATAPI CD-ROM device driver, Rev D91XV352

Device Name : MSCD001

Number of drives : 1
AIC-6260/6360/6370 ASPI Manager for DOS

And that's as far as it goes inside VirtualBox. It doesn't do a PCI bus scan,
it doesn't create a RAMDrive, and MSCDEX is not activated. It simply freezes
after the first ASPI Manager program is activated. I have Vista with a
physical floppy drive and DVD burner, and 16 gigabytes of virtual drive space
One other thing: In Virtual PC 2007 with WinME, whenever I run a game (like
DOOM or Quake), the VPC screen, set at 1152x864 in WinME, shrinks to a small
widescreen about 1/4 the size of my 20-inch 1680x1050 widescreen monitor.
When I exit the game, it reverts back to 1152x864. How do I fix it so that
the VPC screen stays at 1152x864 whenever I run any program or game?
