VPC Help Image  

Hello everyone, and welcome to the unofficial list of which OSes work and which don't in Microsoft Virtual PC 2004. If there is an OS which I haven't listed, then please use my contact me page to report it. I hope this site helps you! Please remember: This site is not official. No one, including me, is responsible for anything that may happen to any system as a result of this website. This website is not owned by Microsoft. It is here strictly for your information. Remember that there are only VPC Additions for some versions of Windows, MS-DOS, and OS/2.

Note about Virtual Server 2005:  Microsoft Virtual Server 2005, released on September 13th to the public, uses the same core code as Virtual PC 2004.  This means that the list below is generally the same for both products, aside from the supported list that is targetted towards Virtual PC.  To find the list of supported guests in Virtual Server 2005, see this link, question "Does Virtual Server 2005 support non–Microsoft operating systems as guests?".

This site supports RSS 2.0. The 10 newest additions to the list are aggregated.
