    Hi!

    I own a legal OEM Windows 7 Ultimate.

    This gives me the right to have a Windows XP Mode.

    However I am not satisfied with Virtual PC's performance.

    Can I useVMWare Workstation safely? Or will my virtual machine XP's license expire?

    xp mode is an os(win xp) integrated virtual machine...
    if you use vmware u will have to install win xp separately, with your own os cd or img....
    so, if ur xp img is a trial one, ur licence will expire, otherwise it'll not....

    Come on guys, Tito, no need to mod anything at all (if running VMW on XP Mode supported OS - W7 Pro/Ult/Ent)

    Otherwise you DO need to mod the VMW BIOS, but NOT for Virtual PC Mode for XP as it does NOT work:

    Mod for anything else & use OEM BIOS Changer accordingly

    Deb Rider, do not give (valid) but irrelevant info to somebody who obviously does know less

    Ditto...:eek:
    The vmware bios patcher is fantastic and it doesnt get much easier or safer...I would recommend multi SLP to broaden your valid oembios options (all of them..LOL)
