Ubuntu 9.10 works under Windows VPC (Sort of)
Posted by essjae on November 6, 2009
Thanks to Matthew Guay, Ubuntu 9.10 was found to work under WinVPC http://www.flickr.com/photos/42564061@N06/4059419695/.

Edit: I haven’t had any success in getting this to work yet 😦
Edit2: I was able to get Ubuntu 9.10 to boot by using the old VPC2007/Ubuntu 9.04 trick:
On the first screen, choose [English].
Press [F4] and select [Safe Graphics].
Press [F6], press [Escape]. This will reveal the command line. Remove “quiet splash –“replace “vga=791 noreplace-paravirt” without the quotes.
Press [Enter] to start the installation.
