I have a Belkin battery backup system (UPS) that has some software (Belkin Bulldog Plus Monitor
) that monitors the computer and AC power, and, in the event of the loss of AC power, puts the system in hibernation.
This worked really well under XP; alas, I've migrated to Windows 7/Pro (64-bit). Belkin has no Windows 7 support (indeed, they have withdrawn from the UPS market).
Is there a way I can get the XP Mode to startup as part of the boot process, and, as part of it, get the Belkin software to load? If I were successful in that, would issuing the hibernation command be limited to hibernating the XP VM, or would it apply to the overall Windows 7 environment?
