Well this article started off an adventure for me.
I bought a new HDD for my 4GB Core 2Duo Lenovo laptop, ordered my Win & upgrade disc (prior to this article I wasn't interested.)
Eventually I got round to installing Win 7 and my apps. First issues were that VMWare server 1 didn't work, so I used VMware Player to get round that.
Skipping more detail and onto implementing this artice. Great got my XP mode download and Virtual PC installed both skipping the HAV point, bad move. Can't use it as Intel have disabled HAV on this CPU; no BIOS options either. So that's it.
Can't even run ordinary Virtual PC, on the same hardware I was running the compatibility images simultaneously with IE6 & IE7 in Win XP with it using only 3GB ram.
Its a shame as this seemed like a great way to test in these browsers.
Looks like I have the following options:
1) Replace HDD with original.
2) Buy VM Ware Workstation so I can run more than one Xin XP VM again.
3) Don't bother testing in IE6 or IE7.
Thanks for the article and a big thumbs down to Microsoft and Intel for downgrading my environment with their upgrades.
