    Hi guys,

    Im trying to prepare for my exam for a microsft cert.

    Which is a good/ reliable virtual machine to run off my 32 bit/ 3g ram Windows Vista Laptop?

    I will be using Win 7 Ultimate for 86bit (32 bit) on the virtual machine.

    thanks for any input. Would rep you all.

    I recommend VMware products. I've had nothing but great experiences and bought VMware Fusion for my Mac. Here are 2 free versions for you:
    One virtual machine - VMware Player: Run Windows 7, Chrome OS - Free Download for a Virtual PC
    multiple vm - Free VMware vSphere Hypervisor: Bare Metal Hypervisor (Based on VMware ESXi)

    Otrher Options:
    Microsoft Virtual PC - Windows Virtual PC: Home Page
    Virtual Box - https://www.virtualbox.org/


    Enjoy! 8)

    I personally whilst being a huge vmware fan if you are looking for a free desktop virt product then I would go with virtualbox by oracle. I prefer it to vmware server 2, but vmware workstation 8 is much better but is a paid for product. Microsoft's virtualpc is ok but not that great.

    Personally I would go for vmware workstaion 8 as it is most flexible and can now run 64 bit systems. The only downside is that it is a paid for product but would be a worth while investment in aiding your studies.
