Trying to run the VS 2010 CTP Virtual PC image inside VMWare Fusion on Mac OSX

I wanted to try out the latest CTP of Visual Studio 2010 but the CTP comes in the form of a VPC 2007 image which meant I had to run it inside a virtual machine. Not a problem in most cases but I already run all my Windows applications inside VMWare Fusion and this got me wondering how Virtual PC 2007 would run inside VMWare Fusion if it would run at all.

The answer is sadly no, I got the error message below when trying to boot up the VM. Looks like I’ll have to natively boot Vista to try out the VS 2010 CTP, no big deal but would have been kind of fun to run a VM inside a VM. Oh well.
