    Reboot your machine.

    Hit the button that opens your BIOS. Could be Escape or DEL or F2 or whichever button your screen tells you it is.

    Search around in your bios until you find the setting for either Intel VT or Vanderpool or Hardware Virtualization and set it enabled. Each BIOS is different so I not sure what yours say exactly. Save your BIOS and reboot. Very easy.

    Some BIOSes do not have a "switch" for IVT or AMD-V, it's just enabled by default.

    dude go to the site where you get virtual pc and click the link that has something to do with Checks and download the Intel CPU tool. This will tell you if your CPU fully supports Hardware Virtualization. For me all I had to do was install virtual pc then XP mode and I was good but I have a Core 2 Duo E8500.

    It turns out that a very small % of intel cpus in pc's ATM support virtual xp mode. This should change as people buy new and upgrade what they have. I would suggest everyone use virtualbox to run software that wont run on 7.
