From a post I made to the list back in July:


One of the occasionally recurring threads on this list
gets into how to get screenshots of stuff like
Windows NT installation, system bootup, and other
pre-OS-load events. Well, I've found a solution.

Check out VMWare ( -- it lets you
have "virtual machines" running under Linux
or Windows NT, and these machines boot, load,
and run just like the real thing (well, they
are the real thing, to a large extent).
Additionally, the hardware requirements aren't
too bad, considering.

Among many interesting applications I've found
* testing Web pages in multiple versions of IE.
You can have multiple Windows virtual
machines, each with a different IE,
without installing or reinstalling, or
having multiple physical boxes.
* bootup screenshots
* permanently "clean" systems--you can opt not
to save any changes you make, so you
always have a "clean" system for testing.

No connection with the company--just an impressed user.
