I am wanting to install 'XP mode' on my Dell e6410 running Win 7 Professional.

 

I ran Speccy and it shows Virtualization as: Supported, Disabled.

 

I've gone into the Bios and ticked all the Virtualization Settings to offer support.

 

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

 

I have run the Hardware Virtual Detection Tool and it says essentially 'not enabled'.

 

My bios is kind-of old but as I recall I've kept it old for a reason (A06, 11/2010)

 

Thanks

I don't think you have enough ram for virtualization. Otherwise, I don't know why that is happening.

Maybe I'll just try to install the program and see what happens.
