Windows 7: List of Intel Processors that support XPMode

All AMD processors except Sempron have AMD-V technology. And the ones Intel support is the first page.

My own machine has issues (relating back to the nVidia mobo / system drivers) with retaining the virtualization extensions unless it is booted from a cold boot - the only reliable way I have of ascertaining whether they are enabled is to us a burned CD ROM of a very small .ISO file called VT.ISO - I was linked to it when I was testing VMWare Workstation 6.5 Beta, and it showed me unequivocally if VT extensions were enabled or not.
IJust as a point of reference, this is what I see when I run Securable from inside Vista x64 or Win7 x64:

Hardware Virtualization

This processor does offer advanced hardware support for virtualization. However, while running under a 64-bit version of Windows this program cannot execute its 32-bit kernel code to determine whether Intel's VMX virtual machine extensions are being locked on, locked off, or neither. Since there's a chance that your system's BIOS may be deliberately disabling support for hardware virtualization (some do) you should re-run this program, if possible, with administrative privileges under a 32-bit version of NT, XP, or Vista. That will allow SecurAble to run a bit of kernel-mode code in order to determine exactly what's going on. (Note that you can also poke around in your system's BIOS to see whether you're able to find any references to "hardware virtualization" or "VMX", etc.
If you want to test your system's true support (and this may only be needed for those running Intel CPUs on nVidia-chipset based motherboards, but it is helpful to know either way) take a gander at this file:

Attachment 9574

It's small, and it is an ISO - you can probably extract the contents (or else use a virtual CD tool and mount it) and make a bootable UFD and save a platter, but I have so many TDK CD-RWs here that I recycled one of my older WinXP Norton Ghost backups....

Enjoy.
I have myself totally confused now. I got the same results you show from Securable. So I burned the VT.iso and boot it, with these results:
Reporting VT capability for 4 logical CPUs
CPU 0 : VT is enabled on this core
CPU 1 : VT is enabled on this core
CPU 2 : VT is enabled on this core
CPU 3 : VT is enabled on this core

Copyright stuff etc....

***CPU 2 Halted***
***CPU 1 Halted***
***CPU 3 Halted***

So would I be able to in XP mode on a:
Intel Core i3 cpu?

Sorry for the newB questions and thanks for any info.

All CPUs now support Xp Mode. MS lifted the requirement for VT on the CPU by releasing an update that enables non-VT dynamic binary translation under VPC7.

This thread is still useful, however, as Virtualization without VT can be slower, and moving forward, VT is required to virtualize 64-bit guests.

So even CPU's without this feature can use XP Mode? How did I not know about this?

Windows Virtual PC : Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode no longer require HAV processors

This was only as of March 19th.

Pretty cool, but as most have pointed out, Dynamic Binary Translation really isn't worth it on any CPU that doesn't have VT.

You can add the iCore 5-500 Mobile processors Intel® Core they have both VT-x and VT-d

The Intel® Core™ i5-400 Processor Series only have VT-x (so maybe...)

Personally I have the Intel® Core™ i5-560M Processor (3M Cache, 2.66 GHz) in my Sony Vaio VPCF13 but had to activate in the BIOS first.
