I think I am not doing anything wrong, but to test our website on IE 7, 8, I am using VirtualBox 4.0.6 on Mac to run the VHD image from Microsoft:
but it keeps on asking me to "activate" Windows XP... oh well... is there a way to activate it? Can I use any special key to do it? Or what if I use my own key of my retail box of XP... but won't that affect my activation if I need to install that XP on another VirtualPC later on? I am trying to help make the website work better on IE 7 and 8... really a thing good for Microsoft, and it is making it so hard to run an expiring OS (expires on May 18, 2011) on a virtual machine.
