Hi since you are in France, I can answer question 1 for you right away.

There is a hack to get 32 bit colour.

Fellow MVP Pierre Torris has the answer for you (in French since you are lost in France)

useable serial com ports?

Will serial com ports from a pci express card show up and be useable in XP mode?

Testing with 8 port usb to serial unit using "attach device" proved to be problematic and ultimately un-useable.

Thanks

OK, I guess I am left to answer this myself.
That would be NO.

I came to see the responses to Hyper V and XP Mode specifically, but since I'm already here:

Also to Microsoft's own "Windows XP Mode for Windows 7 brochure" which can be downloaded here... Windows Virtual PC: Documentation and Videos

Windows XP Mode with Windows Virtual PC Requires:

Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise
• Additional 1GB of RAM
• Additional 15GB of available disk space
• Processor capable of hardware virtualization with AMD-V™ or Intel® VT turned on

You should be able to copy the VHD file from one machine to another.
Be aware that Windows XP mode uses differencing disks and you will run into difficulties if the location of the parent VHD - or the VHD itself - arent the same between VMs.

I Usually re-create the VM but you can copy the VMCX file - if you open this in a notepad you'll see it also points to a VMC file and the VHD using paths which are user specific, so this can be a bit of hack.

Windows Virtual PC : Various File Types for Virtual Machine Backup in Windows Virtual PC has more information.

CAUTION!<---Make sure MSFT doesn't GIVE you TWO KEYS!=MSFT=wasteful
I just realized that once you get a key and click on DOWNLOAD, MSFT gives you yet ANOTHER KEY and of course it will work (all the keys work, 32 works for 64, 64 works for 32, et-cetera), this means MSFT is being wasteful and we will ALL be getting 2 keys. Make sure when you click on DOWNLOAD,...
