I installed Win 7 in both a Virtual PC and in VMware. None have the cool Aero interface. I have read that this is becasue there Virtual video cards are not very good. has any one found a Hack or something that can get Aero working.
I have read about the Remote Desktop trick. Where you remote desktop in to your Virtual PC or VMware and it enables Aero. That sounds like a big inconvenience is there any other way i can accomplish this?
One question: You are testing a BETA OS do you really NEED the Aero UI? If you have a spare IDE/SATA/eSATA HDD (USB?FireWire won't work) you can install Win 7 on it. Un pulg the other HDDs then install it to the spare one (so Window's won't mess with the other drives boot paths), that's what I did.
Anyways this probably won't help you but if you are interested in really testing Win 7 that's what I would do.
Like they said the drivers that the software uses does not support high end graphical effects - if you want to see Aero in Win 7 install it on a spare hard drive or partition your hard drive so you can dual boot...
VMware is only able to do some features of directX 9c an i think that is as of version 6.5. but i have windows 7 running and not able to get it running and cannot get threw the windows experience test in vmware
Vmware don't allow aero. I try my self and install all the tools or addon for vmware. At the end I decide to put on a spare disk I have, usally used to store data.
For win7, I played crysis,fallout and I get one problem one time in 30 days... better then vista hahaha.
