USB Virtualization Driver

While trying to get an external HD (SATA-to-USB) to be recognized again after it disappeared, I read a suggestion to uninstall the USB drivers. After a reboot they were to reinstall automatically. Well, I also uninstalled the USB Virtualization driver (since it said USB...) and it did not reinstall.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the XP Compatibility Mode, and tried to do the same with Virtual Machine, but it's an update and not a program. I read on a thread here that I can remove it and reapply it. Would that solve my problem?

(I'm trying to use a USB scanner and when I try to attach the USB with the tab in XP Mode I get an error that the USB Virtualization Driver is missing.)

How Is Parallels Virtualization Different From Normal Virtualization
I started thinking about our computers.. why we cannot run two operating systems on the same computer at the same time - without virtualization. We have plenty of Ram these days and often 2 or 4 Central Processing Units.

Virtualization Blocked By Webcam Driver Install
Discovered after several fresh installs after playing with virtualization that is was blocked by webcam install..

The webcam works okay (s8850i by sonix) in 7/64 and good in skype..but stops virtualization dead till it is disabled or uninstalled.

From my experience with it so far Virtualization seems very easily disrupted.

I just seem to get over one thing and something else plays up...having real second thoughts as all these things go great in xp now.

Anyway thought this info might help someone if they find the virtualization installed ok but wont run, check by disabling drivers, webcams seem to be a real issue in the win 7 64.

Use Virtualization For Windows XP
Do you guys use a third party VM ware or do you use virtualization for windows XP?? Also is virtualziation really vm ware?? I am looking to put some vm ware on my workstation to test files for accuracy and viruses before loading them to my server. I have thought about doing a VPNing to an old machine but after weeks of research I found out that you can still obtain a virus through VPN.

I just ran SecurAble and found out that "Hardware Virtualization" is locked off.

Anyone know how I can turn it back on? I heard If It's on it would give me better performance.

Drivers Running In Virtualization
I'm not entirely sure if this possible and if it some help with it would be greatly appreciated Basically i have a webcam that has drivers soley for 32bit systems my Windows 7 ultimate is a 64bit system and windows wont install the drivers no matter how much i try and force it to. So i setup XP mode and it all works fine, i can run the video capturing software, Windows live messenger etc in XP mode with the USB webcam attached and it works a treat.

However it gets rather odious to have to keep running WLM via XP mode, so i was wondering if there was a way that the webcam's drivers will run in XP mode with it being in the background and then work on windows 7 so that i can use the applications in 7 instead of XP mode. Im not even sure where to start with something like this so if someone could point me in the right direction it would be nice.

Just to clarify as i do know that my written communication skills can be severly lacking sometimes :P, i just want the drivers to run and no applications for XP mode so that windows 7 can recognize the hardware, is it possible or is it not a realistic thing?

XP Mode On PCs W/o Hardware Virtualization
How to run Windows XP Mode in Windows 7 using VirtualBox when hardware virtualization is not available.

Migrating your operating system to Windows 7 is attractive to many XP users for no other reason than XP has bugs, limitations and after nine years old. Windows 7 really is very stable and pretty smooth even on four-year-old hardware.

I'm running Windows 7 on a Dell Optiplex GX280 with a 3.4GHz Pentium P4 and 3GB of RAM and it has pretty good performance.

But XP doesn't actually upgrade to 7. Instead, you must overwrite or install a fresh copy of 7, perhaps on a new hard drive. And after installing it, you will discover some applications you used with XP are incompatible with 7.

My older applications like Act! 2008, QuickBooks 2002 and others will not run on Windows Vista or 7.

So Microsoft's Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate include a license which allows users to run a virtualized copy of Windows XP, SP3 "on top of" Windows 7 at no additional cost. This way, you can run your older applications in a real XP environment.

Find instructions and download it here.

Microsoft provides two tools - Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode. XP Mode is actually a .vhd file with a copy of XP preinstalled, ready to license and run. A KEY.txt file containing an installation key is included in your C:Program FilesWindows XP Mode folder.

However there's one very big "gotcha" here which can quickly sour your enthusiasm.

Windows 7's version of Virtual PC will only run on systems with hardware virtualization capability, found only in the newest processors with Intel VT-x or AMD-V designs. Most older PCs do not have this, and believe it or not many new PCs don't either! Some systems have the feature, but you must enable it in your system's BIOS before it will work.

This means, even though your system may be new, and has Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate installed, you might not be able to run Windows Virtual PC or Windows XP Mode. Bummer.

But don't let that slow you down because there is a solution.

It turns out Windows XP Mode's license is carefully worded to allow its use on alternative virtualization products such as VMware, Parallels, Xen and Sun's VirtualBox. And interestingly, these products can open the .vhd file either natively, or by converting it. While these products can use the hardware virtualization feature, they don't require it.

Excellent news!

So my old Dell would not run Virtual PC, but does run VirtualBox very well. VirtualBox opens .vhd files as easily as it does it's own .vhi files.

The only problem I had the first time I tried it was an error message saying VirtualBox could not open the file for read/write. Then I copied and changed the new file's security to "Full" for "Everyone" and bang - it took off immediately.

The XP Mode virtual machine presented itself as an expand-on-demand 127GB hard disk image, taking up less than 1.4GB when configured.

Virtual machines require some special drivers and extensions to talk to your desktop through the virtual environment. Since Microsoft created the .vhd, only their own drivers were preinstalled, requiring me to install VirtualBox's extensions to fully support the display, keyboard and mouse. But that is required anyway when creating a Virtual Machine in all these products.

Sun's VirtualBox, free for personal use, is available at

Windows 7 Virtualization And Dual-Boot
I want to setup my laptop with VMWare or something similiar so that windows is running virtually, and every boot-up i am running a "fresh" windows install (sorta how most colleges have their systems setup), as well as have the option of booting into Ubuntu or Fedora as a dual boot option. BUT... i have not setup VMWare since WinXP days and they have so many products im not sure which one to go with.. i only see VMWare workstation for $250? that is too expensive. I use graphic heavy applications. Or, is there another option that will work just as good or decent?

Step After Enabling Virtualization In BIOS
After you save your settings please follow this important step below in order for VT to work properly.

1. Enable VT in bios (where the option is, depends on your MoBo manufacturer)

2. Save BIOS Settings

3. Exit BIOS

4. Shut Down PC (some PC's will shut down automatically for about 3-4 seconds when you save the BIOS. Some will NOT)

5. Leave PC off for about 5-10 seconds

6. Boot PC

you should be all set.

I think this should save a lot of the posts where folk have enabled VT in their bios but it is still not working.

sticky maybe?

XP Mode And Hardware Virtualization Issues
I am running Vista 32 bit and Seven 64 bit (dual boot) with a Core 2 Quad Q9550. Im am Trying to get XP mode to work in Seven. Microsoft says you need hardware virtualization in order to do that.

In Vista, I ran Intel's Processor Identification Utility and the processor does in fact have hardware virtualization. However, in Seven, both the Intel Processor ID Utility and Microsoft's Hardware Virtualization Detection Tool say that it does not.

Does anyone have any insight as to what the problem is?

If you need more info on my hardware specs feel free to ask.

EDIT: I can run virtual machines fine in Vista and there is no BIOS setting for VT, its always on.

XP Mode In Win7 Without Hardware Virtualization
VMLite (a virtualization technology based on VirtualBox ) can run XP Mode in Windows even if your processor is not capable of Hardware Virtualization.

Its a tweaked version of VirtualBox and can run XP Mode even in Windows Vista. The XP Mode in VMlite does not require activation.(You have to download XP Mode from Microsoft and install it with VMLite).

Disabling Hardware Virtualization - Laptop Machine?
where to the disable hardware virtualization option is in BIOS.I have looked upon all the sections, and there is no option that lets me disable this feature. For example in the section named Security I am allowed to set some passwords (3 passwords in total - don't remember for what they were exactly) but pretty much nothing else is there. The first section is called Information and you are not allowed to change anything on that page.Finally, I have also verified that my processor has the option of hardware virtualization technology through the Intel Processor Identification Utility. My CPU is Intel Core i7-2670QM (2.2Ghz)(Extra Note: I need to disable this feature in order to run Mac OS X on VMWare)

Display Driver Intel Graphics Accelerator Driver For Windows XP Stop?
I have an Acer Aspire 7741z-4433 with an Intel(R) Pentium(R) p6200 (2.13 GHz, 3MB 1.3 cache). This only happens to me while I am playing The Sims 3. I have the game set on the lowest quality settings, even though my laptop "claims" to be HD LED, etc. This issue still happens. As you may know I cannot replace the graphics card as it is apart of the motherboard, and to buy a new motherboard with a better graphics card would cost more than a new computer. I have been the my manufacture's website and tried installing an update of the graphics card, and that didn't do the trick either. I am at my wits end, and I just want to play the game without it shutting down and freezing my computer. The reason I know the error is because I do Alt + Tab to get back to the desktop. The way it acts up while I am in game is the screen blacks out but I can still see the software's mouse, and then it blinks a couple times and then freezes completely?
