    I'd recommend that you use an evaluation copy of Server 2003 (downloadable or included with the MCSE/MCSA training kit) and XP Pro/Vista (included with the MSCE/MCSA training kit. Of course Virtual PC is available as a free download also.

    Hi
    Thank you for your reply
    I think they have only an evaluation copy of Server 2003 in the MSCE/MCSA training kit.
    Do you know where I can find an evaluation copy of Windows xp Pro?
    Thanks

    I don't think you can download xp evaluation anymore except for the 64 bit edition:

    I would be very surprised if the MS Press materials for 70-270 did not include the XP evaluation software, but I didn't use it so I don't know for certain.

    Recent: 11/2019 - RHCSA (RHEL 7); 2/2019 - Updated VCP to 6.5 (just a few days before VMware discontinued the re-cert policy...)
    Working on: RHCE/Ansible
    Future: Probably continued Red Hat Immersion, Possibly VCAP Design, or maybe a completely different path. Depends on job demands...

    The MS Press materials for 70-270 has evaluation copy of Windows xp Pro but MSCE/MCSA training kit has only evaluation copy of Server 2003
    Do you think I can use the 64-bit edition xp Pro in virtual pc as guest.
    Thanks

    Use the evaluation copy in the MS 70-270 training kit. You most likely will take this test for your MCSA/MCSE anyway.

    Hi
    Do I have to use windows server 2003 only in virtual server. Or I can use it even in virtual pc. And if someone can explain to me why and what is the difference.
    Thank you
