Can you install Ubuntu Server in a Windows PC VM on Windows 7?

I am running Windows 7 64-bit. I've installed Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode successfully.

It's memory... I had all the same errors as the others until I bumped the memory of the Ubuntu Virtual PC to 1024 instead of the default 512M. Looks good...

There have been quite a few issues with virtual pc and ubuntu, most of them relating to screen resolution afaik. Though I have not tried it myself recently I would suggest looking at these tips

"I installed ubuntu 9.10 on windows 7 with the final virtual pc version and got the segmentation faults as well.

When I change my network settings in virtual pc (I had 2 NICS) to only 1 nic with No Network it booted.

So I'm running Ubuntu now in VP windows 7, but have no mouse support yet.
