Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT)
Intel® 64 Execute Disable Bit

Looks like you qualify.

Yes the processor is capable, unfortunately the OEM doesn't seem to have included a way to enable it

well... XP mode seems to work ok so far for me. I havent had a alot of time to really test it out yet... I have a Athlon 64x2 5600+ processor and luckily virtualization was enabled by default in the BIOS.

on the MS support page for virtualpc/XP mode they list utilities for Intel and AMD processors to determine if yours will work

Well I installed it on my Asus laptop and it works without problem.

I just had to try it lol.

I installed AIM and ran that side by side with 7 and it worked well. I don't have any programs that don't work with 7 so I don't think I will be using this much, but just wanted to test it out!!

this works amazingly well. I really need this, because I have many apps that don't work well with se7en but work on XP.

I've one question:
some erratic display and sound drivers are installed by defaul on XP. for example my video card is a Geforce 8800GT and XP installs some crappy S3 VGA drivers. my soundcard is a Auzentech x-Fi Prelude and XP installs a Soundblaster 32 or sumthing... is this good or bad?

Anyone know if the XP mode would allow old printers with XP only drivers to be useful again? Gee, that might make me hate Lexmark just a TINY bit less.
