    Good day mates,

    I think it's quite clear the question, is it possible to make a VM with XP
    pro x64 AMD in a computer with windows xp pro x32??

    How could I do it?? Using Microsoft VM2008 and what else?

  2. You can't.

    What is Microsoft VM2008?

    There are no Microsoft products that run on XP Pro x86 that support 64bit
    guests.

    If you want to run 64bit guests you need to run Windows Server 2008 x64 with
    Hyper-V.

  4. Actually, Colin, the one product that simply won't work in Hyper-V is XP
    x64. You can't get a network driver installed. Period. Full stop. The Legacy
    Networking is an unsupported NIC, and the Integration Components don't
    install on client systems at this point.

    Well it works as long as you don't need a 'net connection ;)

    I installed it yesterday as an experiment. Now I know why nothing happened
    after the integration iso was mounted :(
    Oh well.

    Thanks for the info Charlie :)
