  1. I want to virtualize the hard rive from windows 7 laptop which died.


    hey everyone.

    I think I'm getting ready to embark on my first virtualization. I had a laptop running windows 7 (upgraded from windows vista) and it died.

    So I put the hard drive in an enclosure and connected it to my new laptop running windows 10.

    I've heard that if i were to virtualize the windows 7 hard drive using windows 10, then I can run the windows 7 hard and its application as if running windows 7 itself.

    Is that right?

    Anyway my other question was that let's say i do virtualize the windows 7 hard drive and save it to my windows 10 hard drive. What happens to the windows 7 hard drive itself?

    Can I move the virtualized windows 7 hard drive content back to the windows 7 hard drive once it's been virtualized?

    I think there has to be a way to do that otherwise, I have two copies of the windows 7 hard drive contents.

    I need some help in understanding this. Thanks for any tips.

    :)

    Windows 7 virtual wifi authentication mode

    Hello.

    Just a quick question to whoever is using windows 7 virtual wifi capability - when you type in "netsh wlan show hostednetwork", cmd window displays a list of settings for your hosted virtual wifi.

    I was wondering, is there a way to change authentication method from WPA2-Personal to simple WEP ?

    Cheers.

    Windows 7 to Pack Virtual Windows XP

    the virtual system uses a virtual soundblaster 16, which was definately compatible with most of the DOS games out there.

    Windows 7 to Pack Virtual Windows XP

    ah! lol. I selected xp from a list and thought that was all that was needed, turns out its just suggesting settings based on the selection. I'll just read up on this. I'm rushing into it without much thought here.

    ya I'm an idiot dude. I thought this would be like the windows mobile emulator in visual studio where everything is loaded already for you. I dont exactly have an xp disc laying around here at work lol.

    I'll just have to play with it when I get home.
