XP mode only runs under Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate. It also requires Windows VM. It's a business solution and not meant for graphic-intensive programs such as 3D games, nor is it well suited for programs with hardware requirements such as TV tuners.

Irrelevant.

Virtualization hardware detection says your HARDWARE is compatible with Windows 7 XP mode. But your OS, Windows Home Premium, is not.

Ditto what Mr. Miller says. All that utility does is check if your system supports hardware virtualization. And it does. You just can't run XP mode because it's not supported on Windows Home Premium.
