No, WinVPC still requires HW VT. But, the OP is running VPC2007.

Not without violating the EULA if you're not running Win7 Pro, Ult, or
Ent, as XPMode is license only for those OSes. I used VPC2007 to see
if it was possible to run XP Mode with it, and it is, as proof of
concept to help someone on the Win7Virt forum. It is no longer
installed on that system.
If you go to the direct XPMode download, at this time you'll see that
no where does Microsoft require Windows Virtual PC, only Windows 7

No, I am saying XPMode is only licensed for use with Windows 7, and
it's a violation of the EULA to run it on anything but Windows 7.
But, you are not required to use Windows Virtual PC to run it, only
that you need some virtualization program to run XP Mode.
So, to summarize, XPMode requires Windows 7 Pro, Ult, or Ent, but it
does not require Windows Virtual PC. Take a look at the direct XPMode
link, MS says you CAN use WinVPC and you need a virtual Windows
environment SUCH AS WinVPC. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...9-4f99e757064e
Windows XP Mode for Windows 7 makes it easy run many of your
productivity programs that run on Windows XP on Windows 7. It uses
virtualization technology SUCH AS Windows Virtual PC to provide a
Virtual Windows XP environment for Windows 7.
Windows XP Mode provides a 32-bit virtual Windows XP Professional
Service Pack 3 (SP3) environment. This download includes a virtual
hard disk (.vhd file) with Windows XP SP3 preinstalled. Client
virtualization software, SUCH AS Windows Virtual PC is required to use
Windows XP Mode.
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7
Ultimate, or Windows 7 Enterprise.
Hard disk requirement: 2GB for installing Windows XP Mode. Additional
15GB of hard disk space for the virtual Windows environment.
Note: You CAN use Windows Virtual PC to run Windows XP Mode on your
computer. Windows Virtual PC requires processor capable of hardware
virtualization, with AMD-V™, Intel® VT or VIA® VT turned on in the
