I'm 99% certain that Virtual PC 2004 SP1 installs just fine on Windows
XP Home. You need to be running XP Pro if you want to have a supported
configuration. If you just want "best effort" support, you can install
and run VPC on XP Home. VPC 2007 will also run on XP Home, however
there is a bug in the installer that stops it installing on XP Home,
that will be fixed before RTM
