davil Posted April 21, 2010 Share Posted April 21, 2010 Hi all, Seems I'm always in here asking questions, but somebody may have tried this already and have an idea which one is fastest. So what I'm asking is this: I don't have a BIOS that supports hardware virtualisation, even though my CPU does support it. So for a while I thought I was SOL with regards XP mode, but then I realised that I could install my old copy of XP in Virtualbox and run it seamlessly, which is great, but it's not as if I can have an "Internet Explorer 6" shortcut that runs just that program, so I'd like to get a proper XP mode going. Then I found out a few weeks ago that you no longer need hardware assisted virtualisation to have XP Mode through Virtual PC, but I also found out today that you can have a kind of XP mode in both Vmware Player and Virtualbox. So does anybody know which is fastest?
