Windows 7: Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup

21 Jul 2009   #90

Windows 7
No Virtualization Technology

I'm sorry, I don't have the Virtualization Technology in my netbook.
Is there any other option without that?

Is there an estimated date when Win 7 will be officially released?
I guess that, after that, we will be able to find compatible drivers, right?

Hello Cecy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm sorry, but this would be a incompatible CPU hardware issue that you are having that does not support virtualization instead of Windows 7 or drivers.

You might see if you are able to use Virtual PC 2007 SP1 instead though to create a XP virtual machine with.

Hope this helps,

Hi Guys

I cant get Windows6.1-KB958559-x64 to install on my Win7 64bit 7232 Build.

I run an e8500 on a Asus P5q3.

Intel ID check says the chip can

Bios says Virtualization Tech is enabled.

I did load Virtual XP mode first though. Is that the issue?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Maybe i need to try SunMicrosystems called VitualBox?

Hello Sands,

Windows6.1-KB958559-x64 should be installed first, then XP Mode. You might see if unistalling XP Mode will allow you to afterwards.

What error message, if any, are you getting?

One question is how to remove both once you have them on. There's no uninstall option for either to allow you to reinstall the Virtual PC first on the second attempt ahead of the XP mode. There's no listing for either seen in the Programs+Features as well as not seeing an uninstall option in the Start>All Programs folder.

Another thing would be installing the Virtual PC a second time to overwrite the first in order to correct any problems seen with the first install. You would follow that following a full system restart which most forget to do in order to install the XP mode the second time. Again a full restart will be needed for the initial startup. Sometimes it takes a few reboots before it will suddenly start running.

There is a listing to remove it. Microsoft Virtual Machine(might be PC). Then just erase the virtual disks if you want.

Virtual Windows XP is seen and maybe tied into both while the Virtual PC item itself is not seen there. Removing the XP mode and restarting the system before seeing the second install of that might work.
