Convert your existing Windows XP computer to a Virtual Machine running in Windows 8

I mentioned during a recent Tech Solutions Radio show that you could turn your existing old Windows XP computer into a ‘Virtual’ machine and run it on your new Windows 8 computer.  If you have some old programs you need that won’t run on a newer version of Windows, but you don’t want to keep that old hardware box sitting around, this may be a great option for you.

Here’s a great article that walks you through the process, step-by-step, using free products to get this done:
