I have a particularly complicated set up in order that I can continue to use an old but high quality HP printer from XP. This involves running Win 7 and XP as VM's within Ubuntu12 on a Dell Dell powedge T105.
I have now learnt win 7 allows XP mode, and therefore (I assume) the XP print drivers I need for the printer and reduce the memory load in terms of the number of Op SYs' I have on the machine.
I checked the PC using "Microsoft® Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool" and it reported that the processor is not capable of doing so. Knowing I am running winodws under emulation I wasn't confident of the test, so I checked the processor and these sites suggest it does.
In the words of David Cassidy "how can I be sure" what's correct before deciding to rebuild.
Any thoughts or help much appreciated.
