    I'm running a Lenovo Y550 laptop with a P8600 2.4 ghz processor and just
    upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Pro. I cannot (there is NO
    such option in the BIOS) enable hardware virtualization in the Bios Setup
    utility (Phoenix 15CN34WW V.2.7) even though I know that this processor
    does support it. Lenovo has no answer... who can tell me if there is a way
    to enable this feature in order to run XP mode in Win 7 Pro?

  4. Don't forget the Win 7 XP mode is only for Pro, Ultimate and Enterprise.
    Supposedly it will not install on Home versions.

    But on Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise there is a patch that
    eliminates the requirement for hardware visualization.
