    Cannot get XP Pro to access Wifi on virtual machine


    I have turned Hyper-V feature on and off (twice) and reinstalled Hyper-V and XP, but cannot get the virtual switch to access a Wifi connection. I have followed Kari's tutorial applying to the legacy switch, but no connection. Does Hyper-V not work on a laptop?

  2. Is it possible to get a Windows XP SP3 Hyper-V virtual machine properly working on Windows 10 Pro?

    Objective summary: to have a Windows XP SP3 Hyper-V virtual machine working correctly on a Windows 10 Pro host.

    Scope and constraints:

    • The host OS should be Windows 10 Pro. Other hosting operating systems or versions are out of this scope.
    • The virtualization hypervisor should be Microsoft Hyper-V. Other hypervisors like VMWare or Virtual Box are out of this scope.
    • The Windows XP virtual machine is expected to be working correctly. A Windows XP with missing drivers is not acceptable.

    This question is not a duplicate in the Super User community.

    I started with the recommendations enumerated on the "Get official Windows XP virtual machine for Hyper-V" question. I was able to get a new Windows XP SP3 virtual machine installation. However, there was a problem with this installation, as it could not finish successfully. Several critical drivers were missing, and this makes the virtual machine unusable.

    Then, I found the missing software drivers problem in the form of the "No VGA and sound driver installed in XP guest machine in Hyper-v virtualization" question. Unfortunately, this question remains unsolved. The responses provided so far by the community are either incomplete, inconclusive or out of scope.

    The more research I conduct on this topic, the closer I get to the conclusion that this is not going to be achievable. I would like feedback from the community to confirm or deny this thesis.

    Thank you.
