Excellent. I've made an attempt at implementing the centaur / via CPUIDs 
(http://www.virtualbox.org/changeset/5285). I hope it will make XP 
happy. Whether it works on not, I would like to see the Centaur CPUID 
section from VBox.log as I'm a bit curious about the parts I didn't find 
documentation for.

Kind Regards,

PS. Let me know if you've got troubles building it and I'll try make you 
a build.
