Booting Xp VHD on XPM, not possible?

Ok so i have created a VHD of my system (dual boot of xp and Windows 7) using Disk2vhd. It's now sitting on my USB HDD which i am able to create a new VM in XPM using that as a HDD. Turned on the VM and everything looks fantastic. Selected windows 7 boot and it booted fine. But when i go to boot Xp it just load and then goes black.

I think this is a restrictions on XPM not allowing to boot to a Xp VHD, Y/N?

it's not a restriction from XPM, it's just your XP HDD needs to be tweaked in order to boot inside a vm.

I've replied to that post, however i'm not sure if it referes to dual boot or not. If it's something wrong with the VHD, then why did Windows 7 part works and not xp?
