That application does not work well, I know people who have CPUs that can do virtualization and it has

come up saying their processor does not support it.

It also must be enabled in the BIOS i think.

Core 2 Quad Q6600 supports it fully!

Didn't think a Celeron 430 would even support it. But apparently it does -sort of-. 64-bit of course, Hardware DEP is turned off (didn't see any setting in the bios though) and that Hardware Virtualization is "Locked off".

 Which apparently means the Celeron 430 does have said features, they are just blocked off, either in the hardware itself or just in the bios. 

 I find that interesting. I figured it'd just be a "No". Screen - http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/3530/celeron430.jpg

 Well, after more digging I found the DEP setting and it is now "YES". Just lack the VT. =P

Aww come on...I buy an E5300, didnt think VT was important, Xp-mode is announced which needs it, and then to add insult to injury, the E5300 is getting updated to support it.

Yea I have the E5200. I thought it was the best CPU I could buy with the money. I don't think the XP Virtual Mode will be so important since everything works fine in Vista.

mostly but i wonder if it will alow you to install 32bit drivers on an x64 host. Ti-connect sucks in every way.

XP x64 allows you to install 32 bit drivers. My sound card is running 32 bit drivers on my XP x64.       -Denis
