How to set up Win XP virtual client on T520 running Win 7 Pro?

<h2>Question</h2> <p><br />I would like to setup a Win XP virtual client on my T520 running Win7 Pro<br /> <br />I was given another laptop running Win 7 Pro - 64bit I5 chip .. Same chip as my T520. This laptop has a folder in the Start Menu with an application to create the Virtual client.<br /> <br />How can I set up the Win XP Virtual Client on the T520?</p> <h2>Answer</h2> <p>You will need to download two files from Microsoft itself to proceed.</p> <p><br />Go to this<a href="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx" target="_blank"> link</a>&nbsp;to do so&nbsp;The first creates the Virtual Machine and the second creates the Virtual XP machine.</p> <p><br />Download and installation are free provided your installation of Win 7 is legit. Once you're done, the same folders that you have on your other laptop will be on your T520.</p>
