  1. Make sure to check out ‘seamless’ mode if your OS/client handles it. It’s much nicer to have it mixed with native windows so you can use your native client tools at the same time.

  2. three things you HAVE to enable to virtualize a 64 bit os. (assuming your machine has 64 bit hardware and os)
    1. enable IO APIC (settings ((control-s))>general tab>advanced)
    2. enable VT-x/AMD-V (settings ((control-s))>general tab>advanced)
    3. use one of the Intel Ethernet adapters (the pc-net drivers are 32bit only, causing the virtualized system to not boot)
    without these things (which are all backwards by default) a 64 bit os just wont work. im running winxp 64 just fine with these settings.
