  • Does it support Windows XP mode the same as Windows 7? Just download Windows 7 XP mode and install it?  Or is that exclusive to Windows 7?

    The Windows XP mode is a feature limited to Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise.
    While it would be to have a client to manage the server completely from remote (including single file restore) without having to run a physical machine, this is not part of the feature set.
