Windows 7: XP Mode


I did a bit of deep digging on the matter and it turns out that my Gigabyte M61p-S3 motherboard supports AMD-V (hardware assisted virtualization), but that it's turned off by default and the only way I can turn it on again is to modify and re-flash my firmware, potentially ruining my motherboard forever. I'm gonna pass on this one.

Hopefully in a future BIOS version Gigabyte will give us the choice to turn it on or off. Until then, no XP Mode for me.
