So you don't need XP mode?
What if one still wants to use their old Office '97 suite?
(In tandem with Portable LibreOffice on a stick,as i do currently i may want to buy a third
MDP-130, not to play DVDs...VLC can do that..but to watch TV in the den on a second monitor)
I was running various ISOs I've downloaded to a spare drive and one I tried was W7U 32 bit.
When i ran its' test the result was that I wasn't HAV capable, hence no XP mode.
So in my slow migration away from my beloved Windows 2000 Professional, I'm going with
XP Pro. I didn't see the tab you mentioned, just in system folder "Windows is activated".
I was temporarily happy until i sought info on XPmode.
I'm going to have to get a book on W7 anyhow, the bloody thing was doing stuff before
I realized that I was connected and it upgraded to IE9 and it kept nagging about
the malicious software tool even after I told the system to ignore and not repeat the
update item again. I need to learn how to disable stuff first, in that XP Pro is more familiar.
There I just need to move all disk access items away from the SSD to ram or another conventional
Blame Adobe [flash], Java [runtimes] , Mozilla [going to VC++2010 compiler]
and VideoLAN[ VLC mediaplayer] .
