    Guy, get real! I suppose you never have any typos? Well, how could you; you're eating WEBSTER's for breakfast! :D Anyway, if you would try to type english on a hebrew keyboard, I doubt your spelling would be only half as good as mine! Have a great day and better go through your posted threads on here before I get bored one day and find your typos ... ! :D :D

    Regardless, only half right. The BIOS must support it, sure; but the processor also.

    And even then it possible doesn't work.

    I have an ASUS P5Q motherboard with newest bios.
    And an Intel Core 2 Duo / E8400 CPU.
    In bios I can switch hardware virtualization on and off.

    But even when I switched it on "SecurAble" says: "Hardware virtualization: Locked ON".
    Same in "Microsoft Virtual Server": Hardware Virtualization is existing - but can't used.

    I know for Hyper-V you need to have VT on AND you need to have Hardware DEP on too. So make sure the Execute Disable bit is set in the BIOS too. There should be no reason that Asus board and Intel processor should let you use hardware assisted virtualization. Windows Virtual PC is based off Hyper-V so I assume the requirements are similar.

    I have tested it with the above mentioned program "SecurAble" and this program shows: 64 bit, DEP is on and hardware virtualization is "Locked ON"

    So congratulations your Processor support Hardware Virtualization.

    After using Xp mode my thoughts are that it's too slow compared to VMWare. It has mediocre Hardware emulation. The emulated video drivers were ancient.
    VMWare on the other hand is very fast and driver emulation and support is very good and unity mode runs great as ever. But I hope Microsoft Virtualization software will improve as it is still in beta stage.
