    I am currently testing Windows 7 on a seperate drive and I want to install win7 Virtual XP Mode. Now i have checked my processor and it is capable of virtualisation technology but I can't find a setting on my AM2 motherboard BIOS which I thought would be capable as it's not to old. I have tried emailing abit but have got no response thus far. Anyone know of another way to tell if my motherboard supports this VT mode.

    System:

    Processor
    AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5400+

    System BIOS : Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG
    Mainboard : AN9 32X series(C51XE-MCP55XE)
    Total Memory : 3GB DDR2-SDRAM
    Video: NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT

    From reading the manual,,,, no, that board does not support Virtualization Technology.
    Even some of the newest boards and processors don't support it.
