I saw this mentioned in another thread and thought I would mention it.
Windows XP mode no longer requires hardware vitalization technology to run. Microsoft is offering an update to bypass that requirement. I guess enough people complained. If you go to the download site for XP mode you should see a third download once you select your OS and language.
