    Hi, for the software side you could just use Virtual PC on your laptop (I'm assuming that you have Ultimate), see here.

    yep, you could set up a virtual machine and download a 180 day trial of xp from Microsoft. Beaware the A+ could include questions on Windows 2000 mine didn't but not everyones exams are the same.

    Hi bluemooncity

    I also have home Premium and have been running Virtual PC for seven months without a problem.
    worth a try and hopefully save youself a bit of cash.
