Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?Tm9ybWFuIFdvbmc=?=, Jun 18, 2006.

  1. i am using a 32but winXP and download 64bit Vista
    i was trying to use Alcohol 120% for opening the ISO
    i can not open it since it does not a 32 win

    beside that, when i send 64bit Vista (4G) ISOto my another 32bit winXP, it
    showed only 14mb on my second compuet.

    Do i need to use a 64 bit windows for downloading 64it Vista

  3. No. However, you cannot start the Vista Setup for Vista x64 from a Win XP
    x86 desktop (you could from a Win XP Pro x64 desktop). You must boot the
    system with the dvd.

    Microsoft is saying there are a lot of people having problems using the
    image file to create a dvd. The predominant problem appears to be burn
    speeds. Burn your dvd at 2X or 4X but no faster. See if that helps.

    I am assuming that you are running WinXP x86 on a 64-bit capable computer.
