I have a new Dell Optiplex 980 desktop with windows 7 professional 64 bit. I downloaded windows xp mode from microsoft, installed, and created a virtual machine. When starting the machine it tries to start and then goes to the Windows Boot Manager with status 0xc000035a, Attempting to load a 64-bit application, however this CPU is not compatible wiht 64-bit mode.
I've enabled Virtualization in the bios. I've searched around and know virtual pc doesn't support 64 bit guest os's, but I would assumpe the xp mode downloaded from microsoft would be 32 bit?
