Has anyone ever tried to install Haiku on Virtual PC?

nice idea, but i think its complicated. even on mac os x and parallels there are minor workarounds.
but for now it runs very nice.

I use the live USB, and it works great on my Phenom II (all 4 cores working), but fails to launch with a kernel panic on my Core i5 Sad

On the Haiku website it says running Haiku on Virtual PC 7 has been done:
https://www.haiku-os.org/documents/user/haiku_under_emulation
and
https://www.haiku-os.org/community/forum/how_to_install_haiku_on_mucroso...

However, there are issues:

and

Also, I do not know whether older versions of Virtual PC are capable of running Haiku, too.
