    I have this board running W7 ultimate and wanted to check out the "XP mode" that comes with it. Enabling hardware virtualization in the BIOS is a must for xp mode to run, but I can't find it anywhere.

    I just updated my BIOS to rev. 2010.0224 but I still cannot find the option. I've searched a bit online and it appears that some people have enabled it, but I can't seem to find it.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction? or at least confirm this board doesn't support it so I can stop looking?

    Read: How to confirm your PC can run Windows XP Mode


    To determine whether your PC works with Windows XP Mode:

    Step 1. Does my PC have a CPU with support for hardware virtualization?
    Step 2
    . Does my PC BIOS support hardware virtualization, and is it turned on?

    Instructions to turn on hardware virtualization in your PC BIOS are specific to OEM models. It is important that after changing your BIOS settings the PC is completely shut down at the power switch before restarting so that the new BIOS settings can take place.
