virtual pc 2007 running xp on macbook pro

So im having a problem. I have a macbook pro 17 and im running windows 7 on it. Only 7, no mac osx. Im using MS Virtual PC 07 to run xp in 7, considering the dual boot thing is **** on a mac with 2 ms os'. The problem is i have no drivers in the virtual xp pc. even if i install the boot camp drivers, still, nothing. this is important becasue i am trying to run Arturia Storm 3.0, which is only XP compatible... u can check their site.

ANY HELP IS GREATTTTTLY APPRECIATED!!!!!
