Obtaining Windows XP Mode

So as the title says...Been running Windows 7 Ultimate since it was released. Got kind of an older PC...Dell Inspion 530...Is it possible to get XP Mode on this? If you need to know the CPU its an Intel Core DUO E7400 2.8GHz

Not sure what else you need.

Find out whether your computer's CPU is capable of hardware-assisted virtualization. To check, download and run the Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool.

Windows xp mode no longer require hardware acceleration. But of course it helps in terms of performance.

Your cpu supports it.

You will be able to run it.

I recommend only giving 1GB ram to xp though. You only have 3GB
