Before Win7, VPC would allow you to see the boot/bios menu of the VM, but not for VPC of Windows7.

Any ideas how to see/get-to the VM boot menu?

Open up the Virtual PC Window which shows your virtual machines (".vmcx" files).

Right-click on a Virtual machine and select "settings".

Click the "Integration Features" setting in the left panel, then UNCheck the "Enable at startup" box in the right panel.

This will give you a console window that shows the BIOS as the machine starts up. Start the machine, and quickly hit the DEL key in order to get the BIOS configuration menu.
