AMD Chip

I'm trying to install the Virtual XP thing, and it's telling me my processor doesn't support it, yet it's not on the list. My processor is an AMD Athlon Processor 2650e

Before you install Virtual XP you have to make sure you motherboard supports Virtualization.
You can do this by going into your BIOS and making sure that Virtualization is turned on.

Ok two things you can try from here.
1) make sure you have the latest BIOS Firmware
2) make sure you installed this item before running the XP Setup Download details: Windows Virtual PC Beta
3) If you can fill out the rest of your system specs in your UserCP we can help you out some more
4) If you can get a screen shot of the error message too would help.
5) make sure you have done all the windows updates.

That's odd it hasn't come up with a BIOS updated and set.
did you shut down your pc after Enabling Virualization in BIOS.
Just found this may help Im not sure tho.

Virtualization was never disabled, e.t. it was already enabled when I checked.
