Run multiple operating system at a time

we may some time want to use windows 7 or fedora,chrome os,beside with xp.That time we replace with existing windows xp or want to instal on it seperate drive,so it is bit risky,for switching operating system want to reboot computer every time,this will be time consuming.

The solution for all this problems is vm player, this will create isolated virtual machine on pc by using we can run multiple operating system at same on same computer at a time.And this is the safest way to test new application and surf web.Vm player can able to run old copy of operating system.At a same time you can run multiple operating system by opening seperate windows for each operating system.U can work with each operating system at a time.It support printing and other operating system.You can also to convert existing operating system in to virtual machine without re-instal or re-configuring the applications by using vmware vcentre converter.vm player allow anyone can try new operating system without rebooting,it support latest 32 bit and 64 bit.Installing operating system to vm player is easier than the direct installation on pc.Run over 200 operating system including windows 7.

compatible hardware to install VMware Player.
The minimum host system requirements for installing and using VMware Player are:

n Standard x86-compatible or x86-64  or most AMD64 processors
n Processor speed – 1.3GHz or faster
n Memory – Minimum 1GB is required, however VMware recommends to have 2GB and above available
memory. You must have enough memory to run the host operating system, the guest operating system
for every virtual machine, and for applications on the host and guest. For more information about memory
requirements, see your guest operating system documentation.
The total amount of memory you can assign to all virtual machines running on a single host is limited
only by the amount of RAM on the host. The maximum amount of memory for each virtual machine on
32-bit hosts is 8GB and on 64-bit hosts is 32GB. VMware Player does not allow powering on virtual
machines that are configured to use more than 8GB of memory on 32-bit hosts. Memory management
limitations on 32-bit operating systems cause virtual machine memory to overcommit, which severely
affects system performance.
Hard disk – At least 1GB free disk space is recommended for each guest operating system.

Processor Support for 64-Bit Guest Operating Systems
When you power on a virtual machine with a 64-bit guest operating system, VMware Player performs an
internal check. If the host CPU is not a supported 64-bit processor, you cannot power on the virtual machine.
VMware Player supports virtual machines with 64-bit guest operating systems, running on host machines with
the following processors:
n Most AMD64 processors
n Intel Pentium 4 and Core 2, and Core i7 processors with EM64T and Intel Virtualization Technology
VMware also provides a standalone utility that you can use without VMware Player to perform the same check
and determine whether your CPU is supported for VMware Player virtual machines with 64-bit guest operating
systems. Download the 64-bit processor check utility from the downloads area of the VMware Web site.
Install VMware Player on a Windows Host
To begin creating and configuring virtual machines you must install VMware Player on your Windows host.
If you downloaded the software, follow the installation procedure, but install from the directory where you
saved the installer file, rather than the Windows directory on the CD.
1 On the Welcome page, click Next.
2 On the Destination Folder page, select the location for VMware Player files.
n If you want VMware Player to be installed in the default location, click Next.
n To select an alternative location for VMware Player files, click Change. After you set an alternative
location, click OK and Next.

If you persist any problem tell me.
