You did not make it clear is it your version of Windows 7 that does not support Windows XP virtual machine or is it your processor that does not support virtulization instructions? If it is the processor then Microsoft have released a patch to enable the virtual machine to work on a processor that does not support the virtulization instructions. If it is the version of Windows 7 you have that does not support Microsoft's XP virtual machine and you have the Windows XP install disk then Virtual Box (free) is just as good.

U can use a virtual machine/box in order to have another OS.

It won't be particularly fast if the processor doesn't support the extension (which allows your virtualized OS to run at a 'lower ring'). I've never tried without the extension, it may not even be possible with certain combinations of modern host, guest and virtualization software - just guessing, not 100% sure. You may be better of dual-booting, or just replacing your machine, (or using another machine for XP) if you really, really need XP too.

I have tried it on a processor that does not support virtulization, and it is not that bad. It is a little bit slower but still very useable. You won't be using it for gaming (due to the graphics) but everything else will run fine.
