I choose minial installation, NAT, uncheck Attach CD. I have the ISO on my
desktop and throw it on the CD picture of the virtual pc which is where ist
read it to install to this point so I know that is working.

it writes holographic and then I get this error message:

"Cannot parse information file for the base distribution: I/O error
Please verify that your media is valid and try again."

Any ideas or experience installing it on virtual PC 2004? Thanks for any
help.
