windows 7As you know, the most thrilling feature in Windows 7 is its  Windows Virtual PC, letting you run  Windows XP operating system on your computer under a virtual environment, just in case you own a lot of old software you can not get rid of. This virtual machine acts like a real physical  PC, so you are supposed to get all the nice utilities, applications and options a real computer has got, including its BIOS (Basic Input/Output System)  utility.

First of all let me tell you that Windows Virtual PC is equipped with AMIBIOS. In order to gain access to the BIOS utility configuration screen in the Windows Virtual PC in Windows 7, all you have to do is to turn off  the integration features, temporarily. Here is the brief step-by-step procedure:

  • Start the virtual machine where you want to gain access to the BIOS utility from.
  • On the window, in the menu bar, click Tool.
  • Now, click  Disable Integration Features.
  • In the menu bar, click Action.
  • Now, Select Restart to reboot your virtual machine.
  • During the bootup,  the virtual machine, acting like a real computer, will perform a power-on self-test, a diagnostic check to see if everything is allright.
  • During such a check, press Del key in order to access BIOS Setup Utility.
