This seems a lot of work, the reason for me trying to update my bios is explained in this thread...

Unable to run Virtual PC (XP MOde)

As the thread states i could acces win xp mode a few months ago with no issues now all of a sudden i get that error. I have read from a few forums that updaing the bios fixed the issue.

Hello Oni

You might like to have a look here ntvdm.exe - What is ntvdm.exe?

You do not say how you are trying to update your BIOS but there are different methods it might just be easier to try another method of doing it.

Make sure that you have read about and understand updating the BIOS before you try to do it

There's a quick way to test if the hardware virtualization in the BIOS is the cause - download this VirtualPC hotfix, install it, and reboot. If the problem goes away after the reboot, then yes, the BIOS is the cause. Otherwise, it isn't likely and you should be troubleshooting elsewhere.
