Many Intel chips can't do XP Mode on Win 7

IT SEEMS XP MODE, the mode which allows certain XP apps to run even on Windows 7, may not be available on a number of Intel chips, especially many of those bunged into retail laptops.

According to Ed Bott of ZDnet, XP Mode, which is aimed at businesses needing specific XP apps to run on Windows 7 and which can be downloaded free of charge for those holding license to Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate, won't work if your Intel processor isn't Virtualisation Technology (VT) ready.

Some HP, Dell, Toshiba, Sony and other laptops sold at retail stores are among the models from a variety of PC makers that have processors that don't support Windows 7 XP mode.

Apparently whilst the newer mobile Intel CPU chips are VT enabled, many of the older, Core 2 Duo mobile chips like the T6400/6570, P7350/7450 and T5200/5250/5270/5300/5450/5470 don't support it.

So, some Sony Vaio, Dell Inspiron, and HP Pavilion laptops plus a host of others won't be able to accommodate the virtual XP mode in Windows 7. In fact, Brooke Crothers at Cnet reckons he found no less than 30 different SKUs just in the T6400 $600 to $899 portable range.

But an Intel statement claims the firm has "shipped over 100 Million chips with the feature," and that it's "supported in hardware by many Intel processors."
