I get the music stutter whenever my system goes into “secure mode” but I’ve disabled everything that puts it there now except for when I press ctrl-alt-del.
I’m using Hyper-V with an XP VM and a Vista VM and it seems to be working fine. I got my system upgraded from 2 GB to 4 GB and that helped a lot (I can assign 1 GB to each of my VMs). For some reason, the Vista VM seems to work faster than the XP though. The only networking issue I have had was that I didn’t realize I had to go in and “add hardware” to tell the VMs that they have a NIC.
Also make sure you install the Integration Services in each of your VMs. It really adds a lot (I was especially annoyed at having to push ctrl-alt-left to get out of the VM window, so I was quite happy to find that I no longer need to).
