Hello Metalsteel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you have a XP installation disc, then you can use the free program ImgBurn to create a ISO from the DVD to use to create the virtual PC with.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello KBz1960,

Sorry, but no. Windows XP Mode is only available in Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 7 Ultimate.

You would have to install another virtual machine program (ex: Virtual PC 2007 w/SP1, VMware, VirtualBox, etc....), then create a XP VM with it instead.

7 home premium 64 bit
 
 

Hummm well I really didn't want it for xp but linux. I suggest that you change the supported host OS as I take this as home premium is suported. I did search some more and found the Virtualbox that I'm attempting now.

Thanks

Will do. I'm not sure why MS listed them as supported host editions when you can't download it using them.

Hello David,

You got this error message because your Intel Celeron D CPU does not support Intel® Virtualization Technology. Because of this, you will not be able to install Windows Virtual PC. Instead you will need to use another virtual machine progam like Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 SP1, VirtualBox, VMware Player, etc..... to create a virtual machine with instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello, I've been loving all the tutorials here. I seem to have run into a snag with this one though.

The virtual machine starts up fine and runs in its window. It tries load my slipstreamed .iso, it says "Windows is loading files" with the loading bar like normal. But then, it stops and I get an error:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause...
...
File: \windows\system32\boot\winload.exe
Status: 0xc000035a
Info: Attempting to load a 64-bit application, however this CPU is not compatible with 64-bit mode.

I just tried it with an iso of my actual installation disc again, to the same exact result. Now, I assure you, my CPU is AMD Phenom II x6 1090T, I am running 64-bit Win7Pro SP1 right now, the slipstreamed iso was x64, and the disc I used was the x64 one. Am I missing something or is there another problem somewhere else I should be looking into?
