I have a new PC. W7 64bit installed on PQ5 SE2 motherboard and like to use XP mode and Virtual PC. I have installed XP mode and Virtual PC but gets message that my PC does not have hardware-assisted virtualization. In manual for motherboard is described how to enable/disable this feature but menue "Intel Virtualization Tech" is not avaliable in bios??? How to solve this??
Well, there is one option you could try. You could download Virtual PC 2007. It is a free download from Microsoft but was originally intended to work with Vista. I run a virtual XP and a virtual win98 machine with this application on my Vista machine. I will try it on my Windows 7 machine. The hardware I run it on uses an old AMD 4400+ X2 socket 939 processor that does not support VT.
I did some google searches for the windows 7 / virtual pc 2007 combination and found that some folks are using this. One site did warn that you may need to do a good uninstall of the windows 7 version of virtual PC. The way I see it you can't go wrong by trying.
Well, Virtual PC 2007 SP1 installed and ran without a hickup on my old hardware. I am using a socket 939 A8N32 SLI with an old 4400+ X2 processor that does not support VT. I booted into windows 7 RC (64 bit), installed Virtual PC 2007 SP1 and created an windows XP virtual machine. As long as I ran Virtual PC 2007 as administrator I had no problem. In fact, this reply is coming to you from IE running in the virtual machine.
