Will Windows Xp Install On The Sp3 ?

Recommended Posts

1000

Hi all.

 

I'm planning to replace my Samsung Galaxy tab and my Macbook Air 11 with a shiny new SP3. Why ? Because SP3 is AWESOME.

 

A quick question though, can I install XP on the SP3 in a virtualised environment ? I am a part time musician and have a few apps that only run in Windows XP. They run fine using Parallels on the Macbook Air. If XP can be installed, am I likely to experience any issues with device drivers ?

 

Cheers

Why don't you try to install you music software with Compatiblity Mode on a Windows 8 computer you have access to?

Not much point, it refuses to run on Win 7 or Vista in any compat. mode etc. Heck, the truth is it is extremely unreliable even on XP.. but I'm so used to it I can't work with anything else.

I don't know of anyone that has attempted this but I say give it a try, you may have issues with drivers though

I would imagine there would not be any problems if you ran XP in Windows 8 through a program like VirtualBox. I can not verify this, but...

That is awesome thanks SO much. Looks like my desktop and MacBook Air can both go out the window after all.
