Windows 7 XP Mode

Im running Windows 7 Build 7229. I want to try out XP mode. But the intel thing says i don't support virtuilization software. And xp mode will not run. Is there a way i can make this run. Because why won't microsofts virtuilization software work when the sunbox or whatever worked in vista.
