I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, and I'd like to use Windows Virtual PC to run both XP-Mode and other VHDs I've created. Is it possible to do both?

Which version of Virtual PC? – John Gardeniers Mar 13 '11 at 10:55
Windows Virtual PC is the version. – Nathan DeWitt Mar 13 '11 at 13:53
Microsoft have released a number of version. They all have the same name but do not all have the same capabilities. – John Gardeniers Mar 13 '11 at 21:50

Windows virtual PC, the next version above Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, supports other Windows operating systems besides XP. One can extrapolate that other operating systems could be ran under Microsoft Virtual PC, but they wouldn't be "supported". Some information about the support and performance of Linux in Microsoft Virtual PC is included in the Wikipedia Article.
