I have a machine running windows 7 ultimate. it does not have windows xp mode on its start menu. how do I get this? do I just run the OS disk and do a re-install? if so, will I lose all my current configurations?

Make sure you follow the Microsoft instructions EXACTLY; Ive had problems when I didnt and failed abysmally to get the XP VM working - required a repair install of 7.
