Win 7 Prof 64, Virtual PC, XP Mode

HP Recommended
Pavilion p7-1226s
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a Pavilion p7-1226s desktop computer.  I am trying to install Virtual PC and XP Mode on the computer.  I was runing Windows 7 Home version.  When I tried to install the Virtual PC, I got an error "will bit work with Windows 7 home, need 7 Pro"  I upgraded to 7 Pro and now I get an message "the update is not applicable to your computer". What does this mean and where do I go from here?

Most of what I could find on  Windows 7 and virtual WinXP is fairly old.  It might not be possible anymore as Windows has moved on.  I had done what you are asking several years ago and Microsoft had to give permission thru the interface for the WinXP to be downloaded into the virtual environment.  It might be possible with VMWare but you would need a WinXP install media  of some sort to get it into the virtual environment.

BTW: the implimantation needs the hosting PC to turn on "virtualization"
