can I use xp mode with W7 Home Premium

  iqs 15:21 23 Apr 2010


Just tried to download the XP mode app for W7.
I have W7 Home Premium ,and a box appeared stating XP mode was for Ultimate & Pro.
Can I still download and use if I say my OS is Pro?

No but you can install Windows Virtual PC or Microsoft Virtual PC and run your own copy of XP.

Have a look at this; click here I haven't tried it though.

I dual boot Win 7 and XP. Used second method here; click here

Had to integrate SATA drivers to XP and also had to use EasyBCD in XP to repair Win 7 boot loader.
