I need to create multiple Virtual machines under Win7. I installed Windows Virtual PC and created a base virtual machine (installed Win XP and other software needed).
I then duplicate that machine but unfortunately, when attempting to launch the 3rd instance, I receive the following error message: "Could not start be cause there are not enough system resources or memory in your computer".
I can't figure out which resource is creating the problem since:
- Memory: I have 6Gb of RAM and each instance is configured to have 512mb of memory (I currently have ~3Gb of free memory while running 2 instances)
- Hard drive: more than 50Gb free
- CPU: the 2 instances are consuming ~30% of CPU (quad-core)
- Video memory: each instance is configured in 1024x768 resolution. My current windows session is 1920x1200 resolution. My video card is a GeForce GT525M: could it be that there is insufficient video RAM?
Any idea/hint on what the issue could be is more than welcome.
