Hi lie07,

you have to enable virtualization in your BIOS.

Here is a tutorial on setting up virtual windows xp mode.

your computer may not support the hardware virtualization that xp mode requires.

It may not. Please post or fill out your computers specifications in your UserCP, including the motherboard and cpu type.

Hi there
Real easy to check
Run this program -- It's the VMWARE 64 Bit guest check -- OK Why VMWARE for a W7 problem -- it's OK since this simply checks that the VT feature in your CPU is working or enabled.

If you get the message This sytem supports a 64 bit Guest your system will also work on Windows XP compatability mode.

Note to run this you DON'T need to have vmware installed or even install the program. Just unzip the program and run it from any location -- no admin rights etc needed.

Enc file

Cheers
jimbo

Thanks for the heads up! jimbo45 Now I wouldn't have to reboot once the 64bit XP mode is ready to see if everything is all set in the bios.

Night Hawk,

how's about using the site's own uploading, instead of freeimagehosting? It takes forever for your images to fully load, resulting in the page loading excessively long.

That would save a bit of time as well if I knew where the option is! It takes a bit of time just to upload onto the upload page there and then post it.
