WDS images don't usually present themselves to machines that are HAL incompatible.
I think, If you build a fresh VM and sysprep it, you can then go ahead and just copy the VHD to all the relevant PC's and when it boots, it'll give itself a new SID.
Don't forget to tick the Integration Features though when you import the new VHD.

That's the solution I had arrived at myself to be honest - adapting the default VM and just imaging the host machine it's on.

Just a thought, the XP mode in windows 7 has awful sound quality when i tried it ( lofi and probably won't support any external USB hardware ) isn't this going to be a problem for a music dept?

More than likely - I'm only trialling it at the moment - if it doesn't work for them, they will retain their XP setup until I can convince them to upgrade their older software to more vista / 7-compliant equivalents.

have you looked at the MDOP App-V or Med-V? they might help you without the dark arts of XP Mode?

What software are you trying to run within a VM? cubase, reason, sibelius?
