I run Vista Home Premium and realize it is unsupported.

When I try to install Windows 95, I get an error message like "no DHCP or proxy DHCP was offered" or something. The disk is in, and yes I tried making the disk drive my primary controller.

if you want to run Windows 95 on Virtual PC 2007? The first thing to know is that it will still run, just without Virtual Machine Additions. The next thing to know is that if you take the Virtual Machine Additions from Virtual PC 2004 and install them on Windows 95 under Virtual PC 2007, it should work. Keep in mind that this is all unsupported.
