    Mr Chan,

    No doubt after some research you should already come to this conclusion, but below are my links for your reference. 🙂

    All AMD APUs (Accelerated Processor Unit) does support AMD Virtualization tech (AMD-V, and RVI, which is similar to Intel’s VT). Link here :

    And only certain AMD processors with a Name (Athlon, Turion, Phenom etc) carries AMD-V support, link below :

    I believe the problem is Acer did not implement it in the BIOS, because the target model comes with Win7 Home Premium (not for business use). and Windows XP Mode is a downloadable add-on only for Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise only, so the clues are there.

    It is frustrating indeed when we buy a new notebook that cannot run all our old VMs, therefore making it worse that our old notebook. Hope your problem will be solvable. Send ACER an email !
