Trying to run a simple default install of the latest Ubuntu or Fedora on 64-bit Windows 7. The install gets to the graphical portion of the install and shuts down Virtual PC completely without any messages . . . am I missing something?

Are you using the Windows built in virtual PC or a third part? – KronoS Aug 28 '10 at 22:13
I'm using the built-in Virtual PC with Windows 7 Ultimate. – user47868 Aug 29 '10 at 13:31

Do you have to use Virtual PC? Try VirtualBox.
