I have a Windows XP Virtual PC installed, which I have modified slightly. How do I install another copy to run in parallel?

You can create a second instance of the XP mode virtual machine by basing it on the same base image as that of the instance created by the installer.

There's a good blog post here that walks through the process (in this case, the author is creating the second VM in order to run IE 6, 7 and 8 side-by-side).

EDIT: I should also point out that this process can be used as many times as you like, so you can create more than two copies should you wish to.

That's what I'm trying to do too, thanks! – HeavyWave May 19 '10 at 7:21
