    Question Can not get XP mode to install in Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

    Hi there I can not get XP mode to install in Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I had it going then under normal windows 7 SP1 Chrome would not let me in to the settings (still doesn't) so I formatted the computer installed SP1 then downloaded the hotfix as my CPU is AMD 8150 Bulldozer and installed them. I then downloaded virtual machine and XP mode.
    ran the xp mode then the virtual machine restarted then did the xp setup. It all goes fine then gets to the end and says that it failed try again. I uninstall everything from the computer even from the registry and my user account and try over and over still the same thing happens so I formatted again. Have been trying this before I have put any other software on the computer.Any idea what I'm not doing or could do?

    Mixsetup,

    Sorry nobody has answered you. Even worse, I have no idea what is causing your problem. Have you tried using VirtualBox instead of the MS Virtual Machine?

    Have you downloaded proper Virtual PC installation package (64bit)? If so, there should be no problem to install it on W7 Ultimate. You can download the right version from MS page:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/958559
    how to install it and use it:
    Install and use Windows XP Mode in Windows 7
    I'd it installed on my W7 Pro without any problem.

    Always look beyond the limits...
