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

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
