1 - Is there a Virtual PC app that runs on an XP system or is it only for Windows 7?
2 - If one exists, could it theoretically be used as a troubleshooting tool for the following situation?
(If need be, we can assume the situation is happening under Windows 7, just for the purpose of this question.)
Let's say one had a PC where the internet access speed seemed to be degraded. e.g. 3 systems on a network that all used to have identical speed test results but one system is now showing much slower results.
Could a Virtual OS help determine whether the issue was hardware related or OS related? i.e. if the speed was still degraded when tested under the Virtual OS, would that be a stronger indication of a hardware problem since the hardware would be common to both OS's?
