HP Pavillion HDX - Windows 7 & Windows XP mode?

HP Recommended

Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions allows multiple Windows environments, including Windows XP Mode, to run on the same machine, requiring the use of Intel VT-x or AMD-V.

Windows XP Mode runs in a virtual machine and redirects displayed applications running in Windows XP to the Windows 7 desktop.

 

My HP Pavilion HDX 9430 has an Intel (R) Core 2 Duo CPU T8100 @ 2.1GHz can someone tell me if I buy Windows 7 will it be able to run in Windows XP mode?

Honestly, probably not. Most Consumer notebooks, (which those are,) have the supported hardware for running the virtualization tech, but the Bios has it locked down.

and why HP is offering bios that limits user? is there no like unlocked version or something? i myself regret buying HP laptop because of this as i use this laptop for programming and other advanced stuff. It so happens that those entertainment PCs meant for ordinary users are powerful enough to fit my needs.

Yes you are able to use Windows XP Mode because you do have Intel Virtualization Technology. Hope this helps. As seen on Intel's own website: http://ark.intel.com/Compare.aspx?ids=33916,

I have an HDX18T with a P8700 processor and XP mode works great. You do have to enable virtulatization in the BIOS because it is off by default.
