    Yes you can use your Windows disc, or Linux, Unix, Mac, anything really.

    You need to install the operating system like you would do if it was a real computer.

    Don't forget that when you install windows on your virtual machine, it is like if you're installing Windows on a real computer, and you need to have/buy another license. I'm just warning you to avoid any problems with your original license key.

    Do not discuss pirated or crack software or OS' in this or any other thread please. We do not allow the discussion of it on this forum. I have removed your post because of this.
  6. Oops. Well, sorry about that Leeky. Thanks for the heads up.
