GeneralVirtual machine for home use PinprofessionalRob Philpott11-Aug-14 23:49 
I have two computers which are always on at home, an old laptop running Windows Server 2008 and Microsoft Exchange and a Win7 PC which runs MediaCenter. Neither really do anything else.
 
I'd like to combine them, by having the Win7 machine run some sort of VM which would host Server 2008 (which is required for Exchange). I'm currently looking at VirtualBox.
 
But, my specific requirement is that the VM would boot when the host does and ideally run as an unobtrusive service or something.
 
Any suggestions - cheap ones?
Regards,
Rob Philpott.
