Installed Oracle VirtualBox on my computer so I can run XP 32-bit. Installed successfully, also runs MSS successfully (still does not find any new updates). Tried the recovery mode on my old Stiletto, and it says "your PC must be connected to the internet in order to recover the device. please connect your computer to the internet and try again". Meanwhile, my VM is connected to the internet, and MSS was able to see my Stiletto just fine. I'm thinking my VM is basically the same as having a real XP machine. Any ideas???
