XP mode on any version of 7
Just in case there's anyone wanting to use XP mode but have found themselves with a version of 7 that does not support it or has a CPU without virtualisation support, here's what looks like a neat solution. I've not tested yet but it looks sound.

Note: if you don't have Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate or Enterprise you need a separate XP license to do this. If you do have an eligible version, you still need a separate license to do it this way; the only way you are automatically licensed is through the Microsoft way.
