    Setup:
    I'm running Win7 Pro (x64) on an Intel X25M (G2) SSD. I would like to run a Win XP 32-bit guest VM using Virtual PC (not XP Mode).

    Questions:
    1) Do I need to be concerned about TRIM/Garbage Collection for the XP guest OS VHD or mapping to shares on the host?
    2) If I copy an existing VM created on a HDD to the SSD do I need to consider cluster alignment for the VHD?

    Thanks

    The answer to both is "no".
    Windows 7 will run virtual PC and it will take care of "trim" for you.
    Cluster alignment is not an issue at PC level, you only need to worry about that at enterprise level when you are servicing thousands of clients.

    cheers, Paul
