    I’m attempting to setup Windows Virtual PC on a Windows 7 Professional install (I can’t remember at the moment if it’s 32 or 64 bit) with a .vhd created from an Acronis hard drive image.

    I can get the .vhd to boot and the Windows logon screen comes up but I’m unable to type in the password or move the mouse in the VPC window.

    I am able to create an XP Mode .vhd that will boot and allow me to type on the keyboard and use the mouse.

    So at the moment I’m not sure if I missed something in creating the .vhd from the Acronis hard drive image (I did follow the instructions from Acronis to do this) or if there is something else that is missing/incorrect.

    Regards,
    Thomas
