As you can see, there are four steps to complete the download process. If you are sure that you need the Windows XP mode, proceed to step 2 to check the hardware by downloading the Microsoft Hardware-Assisted Virtualization (HAV) Detection Tool.
After download the tool, run and make sure your computer is capable of running Windows XP mode.
In step 3, you need to select your edition of Windows 7 and desired language for installation.
Finally step 4, you need to download Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC that will install on your Windows 7 computer.
I suggest you download the 2 files first only you start to install the packages.
The Windows XP Mode package (about 470 MB) contains the hard disk image of an actual Windows XP installation (with Service Pack 3 applied).
