I had a mate with same problem with Vista lappie, however he had his copy of XP.
He brought a small 160GB Hardrive ( 49AU!)
and swaps them when he likes.
Cheap as chips and enough room to put anything XP sims will need.
and you can leave the XP light and fast for sims only.
You could also find some of your later ones work as good if not better.
Hunting down drivers is a once only, download, archive, all done, no biggie.
Yeah if you had to shell out for XP as well probably not worth it.
