I don't think I'm doing anything unusual. I start the VM, which is a fairly
"clean" XP installation, and then launch our install bootstrapper , which is
just a dialog based (so not full screen) installer. The bootstrap binary is
located on our local network. It takes an age for the install GUI to show,
and then installing the MSIs (also on the network drive) takes even longer.
I'm assuming an update to Windows 7 will fix this, but I'll probably not
notice now that I've un-installed Windows Virtual PC.
If I stumble across anythng online I'll post it here.
