Windows XP mode fails to setup

Hi everyone,

Having a bit of a problem getting Windows XP mode to install thanks to a stupidly ambiguous error that occurs at the end of installation:

I've researched my core (Q6600) and it's supported with VT...

MOBO: Gigabyte P965-S3
GFX: nVidia 8800GTS 640mb
RAM: 4GB/800Mhz DDR2
CPU: Q6600 2.4Ghz
OS: Windows 7 RC x64

I also have adequate hard disk space for installation...

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot.

I would uninstall the Virtual Machine software, reboot and try installing the VM software and then the XP Mode.
