Hi, do you mean connect the XP computer as a part of a network?
Then yes it will connect however not in the Windows 7 Home Group, it will only work as a part of a network.
How do you intend connecting the two? Via the router is the simplest, even if wireless.

What I had in mind was to run Win7 as the host machine and have XP_SP3 converted to be the guest OS under vmware workstation.

Sure, should work fine. You want to convert your XP to a VDM I think.
I found this: http://www.techrepub...-8-with-vmware/
It's written for Windows 8 but should be the same for Windows 7.

I think I'm slightly happy to be running Win7 x64 where I am able to elevate the system ram from 4gb to 16bg.

When booting after entering and exitIng safemode, I get the splash screen that shows, "Failure configuring Windows updates. Riverting changes. DO NOT TURN OFF COMPUTER."
Should I perhaps try installing these updates in safe mode? There are about 133 of them.

Hi, this is a problem with installing a fresh Windows with a disk first made some time since.
Make sure you have Windows updates set to manual, you will then get the list of all available updates, remove all the ticks except a small batch of say five of the earliest dated, and allow it to download and install them,
If that is OK, then install another five, it will make it a little easier to identify which one is causing problems doing the updates in small batches.
Sorry though that it will take some time to do.

No, you should not have to do it again.
Might be worth trying what the link suggested for the BSOD even though that is not what you are seeing. They could be related.
