Windows 10: Hyper-V virtualization - Setup and Use in Windows 10
Run the XP Network Wizard (Explorer > My Network Places > Set up a home or small office network). When it asks the workgroup name, give the name of your network.
When done, on your XP vm, right click the network adapter and add TCP/IP version 6 protocol as shown in below screenshots:
Step 1:Step 2:Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP:
Step 1:Step 2:
Add a network printer in XP vm using the local printer option, not the network printer! Weird but works, just add a new local TCP/IP port and add the printer. When finished, follow the next wizard's instructions to install correct printer drivers if you hadn't already installed them:
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the printer installation.
In Windows 10, disable the 128 bit encryption:
Now all the network shares can be seen and added in XP, and XP is visible to the network:If you just want to access the host resources instead of full network access, use the XP vm over Remote Desktop Connection instead of Virtual Machine Connection. This way you can access all host resources without limitations. Here connection over RDP, all host (Windows 10) drives shown in XP vm Explorer:

Whatever I try, however I set up an XP virtual machine, I cannot make it fail to connect. It always connects. My XP virtual machines always connect and always see the network and can be seen. Simply use the legacy NIC which is connected to a working external switch.

Well, I was not expected that is so easy...with VirtualBox (5.03). It's working so far perfectly.. faster than VM.

That's great news! I'm glad to hear that went well for you there. VBox is known for keeping things plain and simple while the other options tend to offer more features and can get into slightly more complicated set ups at times. But those are also intended for use by the more tech savy users like program developers, architects, and other professionals that will have the need to invest quite a bit more at times in virtualization.
I'll be giving that one a try out soon on the laptop that was upgraded for someone so they can see a VM at work!
I can't do it. It says virtualization is disabled in the firmware? How to fix?
You have to enable it in your BIOS or UEFI settings. As different BIOS / UEFI systems have different settings it is impossible to tell how to do it in your case. See this article for some more information: How to Enable Intel VT-x in Your Computers BIOS or UEFI Firmware
Did you install the correct printer drivers in XP, on your virtual machine? If XP vm has the correct drivers installed and it sees the printer on host, it should print.
Yes. I checked Sony and VirtualXpPro and both have "Intel Windows 2000 or XP" box checked.
I don't get that? Do you have the HP LaserJet P1006 printer drivers installed on the Windows XP virtual machine? The virtual machine cannot use the drivers installed on host.
You need to install the drivers in XP, on your virtual machine.
I don't get it either. Noticed on Sony which is running Xp-Pro that my host printer is visible in File Explorer along with my host files. However in XP Sony AND Virtual, Device Manager has no printer listed. Any ideas why it is not shown but is shown on the host ?
I've been using Windows 7 Home Edition 64bit since it's release &, by in large, I'm pretty pleased with it. During a motherboard change & RAM upgrade to 32G, I upgraded to Windows 7 Pro (to enable all RAM to be used) which I choose in preference to...

No go VMware said the same thing boo-hoo anyone have instruction to enable in bios ?
Spec's are added,
I'm getting there, I've downloaded the .ISO file, I've made 2 images of my C:\ drive (using 2 different backup programs) and I've created a 100 GB partition on my second hard drive labeled Windows 10.
Now I'm going to create the install...
I tried to install the preview as a virtual machine and everything went fine until after a reboot following the download and installation of the updates. Both 8.1 & 10 locked up with a strange crackling noise through the speakers every few seconds....
