I have a license for Windows 2008 Server R2 but I wanted to set it up as a virtual server running on another box, but I am having problems installing it due to the fact that it thinks it's a 32 bit operating system because of Virtual PC.
The plan was to create the VHD of the Windows 2008 Server using my desktop and then move it onto the server when it was ready; My desktop runs Windows 7 64 bit and thought I could install the 64 bit version of Server 2008 but the installation stops me saying that the host environment is 32 bit, where it's not.
Is there a way to do what I want to do? Different software, etc?
Thanks in advance.
