Default Virtualization help

Does anyone know of any virtual software that mimics your actual hardware and drivers inside the virtual machine? For instance, VMWare has a VM SVGA Adapter thingy and doesnt mimic my sound card (XFI). Because of this i get wierd problems when i try to play old games (The reason im using VM).

Im getting XP Mode for 7 right now to try that. Id rather try Virtual PC instead to try other OS's but MS site is being BS ATM.

XP Mode runs inside VirtualPC. So you are still using VirtualPC.

Yea i realized that. Had to grab it from a friend since i was in a validation loop on Microsofts website. His description wasnt very clear. I had both 98 and XP installing on my machine at the same time via VirtualPC lol.

But ive tried 3 different programs and neither of them do what i want.
