Hello Karth,

There is a way, but it will require you to own a valid XP software license and a means to install XP. To have such a virtual OS, you will need to download the software (another may suggest their favorite). I'm not sure if they cost money or not.

You might upgrade Home to Pro, and get a free license of XP and the ability to download the free virtual OS software.
