Windows XP Mode itself will not work if the host CPU does not have VT enabled, or does not have the feature at all. You can however extract the vhd file from the Windows XP Mode installer and load it into another virtualization product, such as VMware, or VirtualBox. The only difference is the lower level of integration with the host copy of Windows 7.
