Well, after some time with Google, I found this:


According to that page, Virtual PC does support DirectX, but not Direct3D or Hardware 3D

So, it still fails, unless there is a new version that supports Hardware 3D and D3D

Also, the reason why I'm choosing Acronis Boot Selector, is because it has an easy graphic interface, with mouse support and it's inspired by WinXP

This is analogous to installing DOS just to play doom...

GTA2, as you said- works fine in XP, and so Does Porsche Unleashed (Porsche 2000).

Really it's more a matter of finding the proper patches, both official and unofficial. Almost any game with a solid following has unofficial patches for new Operating Systems; why, even NFS: High Stakes has a patch that let's it run on Vista when in fact it barely runs properly on XP without changes...
I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.
