Can't install CentOS 6.3 on MS Virtual PC
As the subject says, trying to install CentOS on a Windows 7 Virtual PC and after the circle completes the installation halts. Does the same if a CD or ISO is used.

The VPC has 1024Mb RAM, 130Gb dynamic HD and boots from CD.

Am I missing something or this just not meant to be.

Did you test the iso download for correct shal or md5?

I don't use VPC but I have many times in the past. It is an OK product if you don't need usb support.

I guess it may help to know more about the host computer.

I can't access this link right now but see it maybe.

Bailed out on VPC, the iso was fine and installed correctly on vbox.

VirtualPC nowadays is the worst product you can choose for virtualizing Linux. Its main purpose nowadays is to be used as a VM for Windows XP in Windows 7 (XP Mode). It totally lacks support for Linux, which means no graphics acceleration, no mouse pointer integration, no seamless windows, no shared folders and all the other feature modern VMs have.
