No, not really. Sadly.
Anyway, it's irrelevant, as the OP has now clarified that he is
running in a VMware ESX environment, so that would be the host.

What? No, not even slightly true in any case whatsoever.
XP Mode is a pre-installed VM image of XP Pro 32-bit, registered and
activated against the virtual hardware of MS Virtual PC 2007.
Since its entire purpose is to run XP apps which will not work on Win7
in a VM under Win7, it would be pointless if it was not the
maximally-compatible standard 32-bit XP.
