Hi I have virtualbox installed on my PC. I added a win 7 machine and server 08 to it. What i am having trouble with is gaining access to is server 08. It comes up saying alt-cntr-delete but when I click those 3 it is for the host PC. How do I gain access to server 08? I believe it has something to do with one of the following tabs machine, view or devices. Can someone help me out with this plz?

thx

That is how you do it via ctrl+alt+ins as ctrl+alt+del is not enabled.

Can you go to Machine upper left corner and do the ctrl+alt+del there. In order to do this your mouse must be within the virtual box and it must be clicked.
