I have 2 OS's XP and Win 7 on different partitions on the same HDD.
Also I've read this note regarding the MVirtual PC : Windows XP Mode can only be installed on Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 7 Ultimate and I am wonder :

This is confusing to say the least - are you saying you have an XP machine which you would like to virtualise within Windows 7? If this is the case then maybe you could let us know your requirements, if you're looking for a quick and dirty approach, load up a remote session; however there are plenty of free virtual environments such as VirtualBox or Vmware Player available to you, getting the XP machine to these platforms of virtualisation is going to require a converter. Off the top of my head I know VMware provide a converter for physical machines to virtual formats to be imported into their player.

Following are links which will help you in achieving this:

VMWare Player:
www.vmware.com/go/downloadplayer/ ( Will require signing up for their services, but its free and they dont hassle you)

VMWare Converter:
VMware vCenter Converter, Convert Physical Machines to Virtual Machines (be sure to read the documentation, or as a fall back let us know if you need help)

Thank you Colin for your reply and yep, as far as I've read VMWare is the right choice.
Best regards,
