Four Ways to Try Windows 7 Beta in a Virtual Machine

I’ve been a long-time lover of using virtual machines to help me test software and OS’s.

Windows 7 is no different.

Granted, some folks like to live “live” and Dual Boot Windows 7 with XP or Vista, but that isn’t quite my taste (or daring).

While it wasn’t a problem for me to load and install W7 in a virtual machine, some folks might have some issues and be longing from the sidelines to play with W7 while others dual-boot.

So I scoured the Tubes and found the following awesome posts that provide amazingly clear walkthroughs on doing just that, installing Windows 7 in four different virtual-machine platforms.

Have fun!
