Virtual PC 2007 help - Setting back the date in the BIOS

Post by XX55XX »

I have been trying for the last three hours to install the Windows 7 beta onto a virtual machine. Problem is, it seems that whenever I set back the clock to December 2007 in the virtual machine's BIOS, it would seemingly resynchronize itself with real time, and I would be unable to use the beta, since it would go into reduced functionality mode.

Any tips? When the VM starts (before installing) I press DEL to access the BIOS, and set the BIOS date, and then F10 to save and exit. Then, I proceed to install the beta, but it then would revert to reduced functionality mode. When I check the BIOS again, it would have the current date on it.

Odd... I am getting a little fustrated...
