Hello Jacob, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you already have a copy of XP with a legal product key number, then you could just create a virtual machine with it using Windows Virtual PC or in something like the free program VirtualBox or VMWare Player.

If not, then you'll have to purchase Professional or Ultimate to have XP Mode available.
