Windows VMware Instance??


Hello Guys,

I have been using two CentOS Instances running on UBUNTU Fiesty Server 7.04.Now I want to remove one of the Instance and make Windows Xp run on it.
How can I go for it?
Any Idea?
Any resources?


Thanks in advance.

just delete the old vm and create a new one, there's not anything "interesting" about this... are you having some particular issues?

you install windows just like a normal install of windows, just in a vm. you turn the vm on, it boots an xp cd (or cd image) and on you go. And of course you need a license for it, why would you think you wouldn't?
