    Has anyone tried running Windows 7 XP Mode with Parallels on the 2011 Macbook Pro's? Does it still not work with Parallels?

    PS I initially replied to a similar topic in the 'Mac Applications and Mac App Store' topic, but I thought it best to post the same topic here.

    I have mbp 15" with Parallels 6 and Windows XP installed. Is working perfectly for me so far. I am not sure I understand your question.

    It will probably work as XP Mode no longer requires hardware virtualisation, which it will not be able to access if it's running inside a virtual machine.

    What this would be doing though is running a virtual machine inside a virtual machine so expect it to be slow and also have no graphics acceleration.
