    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • I have WHS running on Virtual PC 2007. Works great! I use it to test out addins before I install them on my real home server.

    If it works on VPC it should definately work on VMWare. In the past I used the freeware VMWare Converter tool to take an old Win XP laptop and convert it to a VM. I would imagine you could do the same in this situation.
