windows 7, windows xp
Couple of Virutal questions

I have been playing around with Windows XP Mode and VMWARE Player. I have read alot of posts here but it seems the more I read the confused I get. So here we go. Any help would be greatly appriciated.

1) I created a VM with VMware player and installed windows 7 on it. I gave it a 1 GB or RAM and a 60 GB HD. It is slow though. It looks like it using alot of CPU just to process Webpage requests. Videos are choppy. Is there a way to improve it. My pc has a AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual core processor 4600+ 2.41GHZ.

2) I have a PC that is dual booted. Windows xp installed first and then I added Windows 7. Is it possible to create a virutal using a system image backup that I took of the my pc ? I saw alot of posts for myOLDPC that would make changes for XP boot issues buy I haven't been able to find it anywhere.
