Hi guys,

So I've installed Linux Ubuntu Mate 19.04 on my machine here, and I've installed Qemu and VirtualMachineManager alongside it. I've succeeded with installing windows 10 via narrator and 7 via the PE, but does anyone know if I can install xp in a similar way? I'd like to install it for nostalgia's sake. Thanks!

Not that I'm aware of, unfortunately. For Windows XP the only option is downloading an existing VM from www.grossgang.com/vmware

O, they ruled the solar system near ten thousand years before, in their single starcrossed scout ships, mining asteroids, spinning lore.
Then one true courageous miner spied a spaceship from the stars. Boarded he that alien liner out beyond the orb of Mars.

If you'll see, my current configuration uses Qemu, not vmware. So unfortunately, these vms will not work.

Do an unattended install if you have or can get a hold of a diskette drive, or if windows xp takes answer files on usb flash drives.

I'm the only adventure at c: master hahahaha I have unlocked just about everything!

I don't know that Xp could be installed via flash drive. I know 7 could, and up, but yeah. I was never able to do it under XP except with what vision I have and a powerful magnifier.

doesn't qemu support vmdks? just figure out the hardware vmware emulates and place the requisite hardware in the vm.

I'm not sure if it does or not. Even so I'm not sure it'd be compatible.

Mason, unattended installation is your best bet, or, you can use OCRDesktop and try to install it manually

It seemed OCRDesktop was no longer updated and was incompatible with Ubuntu 18 and 19. I've since taken Linux off that machine. Ah well
