32 bit XP in XP Mode?

Hi guys:) I have a question about this XP Mode in Windows 7.7100. On the Microsoft's website it says that the XP is SP3 and that it is 32-bit. Well I downloaded everything and installed and I see that this XP only has 16-bit color mode and when I go to setting only 16-bit option is there. How to make my XP in XP Mode 32-bit??

I think you are confusing color depth and the size of the file system. Inside Windows 7, Win XP mode will only show graphics at a 16 bit color depth. Win XP mode is also only 32 bit in size but can run inside a Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit system--very different things...
