  1. Thanks very much for this video. My primary interest in the virtual XP is for use of PowerPoint 2003. I simply do not like 2007 as much. I have a few questions: After the downloads, will I simply install my xp discs as usual? Also, there are no security updates for xp; does this mean I should not use xp when on internet? Thank, again for your help!

  2. it was helpful , but unfortunately that I have a Home edition version of windows 7, and can't at this time take the risk of not having the whole installed software. i need win XP to run the operations research package QSB WHICH ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH 32 BIT OPERATING SYSTEMS. thanks

  6. I created 2 virtual pcs "Windows XP Mode" (default name) and "GP02SAT" (custom name) cuz i want to run 2 versions of IE. but on my host computer (win 7) if I go to start->windows virtual pc-> I only see the defalt Windows XP Mode i dont see GP02SAT and as result i cant see GP02SAT's IE. any ideas why?

  7. After you've committed the upgrade the only way to reinstall XP is to get an OEM disk for your computer. Bring your question to the community page, they may be able to help you. You can find it in the top right corner of my channel.

  8. You could use a program called Virtualbox to attempt to do this, you'll need a 32-bit copy of Windows 7 though. Remember, questions can also be asked at the Google+ community pcmtechhelp[dot]com/community where you will get a more prompt response from fellow YouTubers and subscribers 🙂 Hope this helps.

  9. I'm actually planning (don't tell too many people) a virtualization series, where it goes through the configuraiton and setup of many different operating systems on top of Windows 7. I will be using VirtualBox instead of VMWare
