Default Mini XP inside Windows 7 - 05-04-2009, 12:02 PM

Just wanted to let everyone know that XP Virtual mode does not work on the Mini, it REQUIRES virtualization hardware on the CPU which the Mini doesn't have, and won't install because of this. So unless someone can find a way to disable the check, you will still need to use a separate tool for this ability.

the mini 12 and 10 would be able to run them...but alas they are limited to 1gb of they don't meet that requirment...

so it seems like we are just getting teased all around
