Windows Windows XP Mode, the virtualisation tool currently in beta for Windows 7, only works on processors with virtualisation extensions, known as AMD-V and Intel VT-x. Microsoft made this clear from the get-go, but still various news websites regurgitated it as "news" yesterday that some Intel processors do not support XPM. Twenty-four hours down the road, and Intel had a few things to say about this.

My Bad, it doesn't activate under VirtualBox - so it working was deceptive - and it won't accept any legitimate keys either so it must be somehow locked to Virtual PC for it's activation rules.

Ah well, not like I don't now have plenty of legitimate unused copies of XP floating around.
