    Cannot get video past 16 bit in XP

    Running Virtual PC under Windows 7 64-bit. In the XP Professional virtual
    machine, I can only have the 1441x918 pixels 16 bit display (there are no
    other options under Settings).
    I was able to get other options when running XP in Virtual PC 2007 under
    Vista. I am also able to get other options in Vista and Linux virtual
    machines now, but not under XP.

    Why is that? Is there a solution?

    Will appreciate any advice.

    There's a registry change that you can do to get 24-bit color, but
    otherwise, disabling the integration components is the most you can do.

    http://support.microsoft.com/default...278502&sd=tech
    is how to set it to 24-bit color (I know it applies to terminal services,
    but it uses the same display tec)
