I have Win 7 pro so I have a XP mode license. I've installed XP mode and I want to use as a VPC rather than integrate. Base PC is AMD 4 core with 8G ram so not too slow. But using XP mode in a window has a redraw in seconds (well at least 1 or 2s). It's painful. I've tried the 16ms to 1ms change in options and turning off services but it just tweaks at bit (0.9s say).
Would I be better off with virtual box and can I use my xp mode vhd in virtual box? I read about vmlite plugin but that just seems to suit vbox 3 when 4 is out now, or do I have that wrong?
