New build and install

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Jeremy Samuelson, Jan 3, 2008.

  1. I am trying out the new Windows XP Pro x64 edition on a brand new build. I
    downloaded the trial and I am planning on using it on my new build. Does
    anyone know if this will work correctly or is the trial only good for a
    reinstall over a previous XP 32-bit OS. I do have the necessary hardware
    requirements for x64. Thanks!

  2. The trial is a standalone install. It should work just fine. You need to
    burn the ISO to a CD (not copy it as a file, but burn the image), and then
    boot off the CD.

    Hi Jeremy,

    That was exactly what I did.

    I installed the trial on a seperate partition. But if you find you like
    it, you still need to install it on a clean partition. Why? The Drivers need
    to be 64-bit Drivers. The current drivers for your devices are 32-bit.

    Also the Briefcase Folder, if you use to download into, from the
    Internet, doesn't work that is placed in your Desktop. You can't download
    into the Briefcase Folder from the Internet. You need to download to the
    Desktop, then move the Download into the Briefcase Folder.

  4. The trial is a fully functioning copy of XP Pro x64 except that it is
    time-limited (evaluation) copy. Treat as a standalone OS that you would
    install on a new computer.

    There is no relationship between XP Pro x64 and XP x86 other than
    functionality. XP Pro x64 is not an upgrade or update to the 32-bit
    edition. It is an alternative to XP x86 for users needing the extended
    capabilities of a 64-bit OS. It must always be a clean install. There is
    no upgrade path from x86.
