Yea Virtual PC can be installed, but I'm guessing that the XP mode download won't let you install it on a non Pro or Ultimate PC. Either that or the OEM key they use for XP Mode won't let you activate it so you can no longer use that install. It seems like the only reason for it being Pro and Ultimate only is because they give you the XP key. If you already have an XP key I don't see any difference between XP mode and just installing XP Pro yourself.
I don't know of any other way to install XP Mode than the link I showed you. Not sure if there is another way to do it or not.
