Hi 😀
I'm trying "Windows Millennium Edition" on "Virtual Pc 2007"
Windows ME -> 128mb ram

Two questions:
1- Startup image:

The startup image shows up for 1 second and then a black empty CMD screen appears for 10 seconds and later the desktop.
1 second???!!! Can this be configured?

2- Shutdown image:
When I shutdown "Windows ME", before the final screen ("It's now safe to turn off your computer"), I see this screen for few seconds:

Is this normal? Do i need to configure something?

These are just cosmetic problems? I wouldn't worry about it.

ETA: A more serious problem I have encountered with VPC2007 and W98SE/ WME is that the video driver malfunctions if the virtual machine is rebooted in full screen mode. Are you also encountering this problem?

Hi, here are some old tricks of mine..
Re: Final Reality on Windows 10?

Also, you can edit the VM file and increase video memory to 16MB.
This should work fine if the virtual machine additions are installed.

Good luck! 👍
