Find Out If Your Computer Can Run XP Mode in Windows 7

Microsoft today released a slew of details regarding Windows 7′s XP Mode, which allows applications to run under a virtual Windows XP machine. According to the new details, XP Mode will require:

  • 2GB of memory
  • 15 GB of additional disk space
  • a PC with Intel-VT or AMD-V enabled in the CPU

The first two requirements are easy enough to figure out, but many users aren’t sure whether or not their processors have the necessary virtualization capabilities (Intel-VT or AMD-V). Fortunately, there’s an easy way to find out.

Download and install, and run the tool SecurAble. If the program displays a “Yes” for hardware virtualization, as depicted in the image below, your system can probably run Windows 7′s XP Mode.
