ok, that patch fixed the prob. and let the install finally complete..so it's the amd bulldozer cpu's , these were the dual core AMD A-4 5300 that was stopping the xp mode from installing...the patch is at:


and is called: Windows6.1-KB2519949-x64
Do you have vpc installed ?


If not try installing that then reattempt the xp mode install.

i think i may have figured it out...there is chatter on the net that the amd bulldozer cpus have a known prob. and a patch..i am installing the patch and trying again...will post if that fixes..
