One of the most intriguing feature in Windows 7 is its famous Windows XP mode which allows you to run the old Microsoft operating system thanks to a special virtual environment called Windows Virtual PC. To find out if your computer is able to support Windows XP mode, Microsoft has recently released an interesting tool called Microsoft Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool. 

Microsoft Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool checks your computer and its settings (above all your computer processor) and finds out if it supports the virtual environment to run Windows XP mode. Windows Virtual PC needs special processors (hardware-assisted virtualization capable) to work, along with special options such as AMD-V, Intel VT or VIA VT turned on in your PC’s BIOS.  HAV detection tool is compatible with  Windows 7; Windows Vista Service Pack 1; Windows Vista Service Pack 2; Windows XP Service Pack 2; Windows XP Service Pack 3.
