Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Boot up the Windows XP machine, put in the cd and it should just map through. If it doesn't, you can usually put the software on a USB key and connect the USB key to the computer. Finally, you can use shared folders between the XP host and the Windows 7 machine and copy the installation files over to the XP virtual machine.
