Yesterday I started with creating a new image for running the CRM 2011 beta edition. I tried to create a x64 image on my Windows 7 OS x64 machine but NO???? grrrr Virtual PC doens't support creating x64 images, so TWITTER is the solutions and Sebastiaan pointed me on Virtualbox. I have my Windows 2008 R2 x64 with Exchange 2010 x64 and SQL Server 2008 R2 x64 now running with VirutalBox. GREAT tooling so check the website and you can download it here. More updates on my image will be posted soon...
