It should be the same principle, right click your project select properties and change the setting to reach.

What graphics card do you have on your machine?

Does it work for XNA 3.0?

Did XNA 3.0 work on your computer?

What graphics card do you have?

I only have a netbook and this fix worked for me.

Is your graphics card capable of any directX support?

Thanks a lot for this tip!
Had moved (with quite some time and effort sacrificed) my XP Mode image from VirtualPC to VirtualBox as this offers 3D support, but then ran in the Hidef error and was nearly going crazy.
You saved my day!
