    I am trying to install 64bit XP. I have my bios set to boot from CD but it
    does not.
    I have removed 64bit Vista and reinstalled 32bit XP pro but want to replace
    xp 32bit with XP 64bit. I am unsure of how to get my system to boot from the
    63bit CD. There was no problem booting to the 32bit CD.

    If your system will boot from the 32-bit CD, then it should
    also be capable of booting from the 64-bit CD unless you
    either have a defective CD or the IA64 version which
    requires an Intel Itanium CPU.

    Thanks Theo. I'll re-burn a new CD as I know the version I have is not for
    the Intel as I have an AMD 64bit processor. I may repost if problem continues.

    Maybe a bad CD? Do you have a CD ROM drive AND a CD or DVD burner? If
    so, try putting the CD in the burner and booting on it. For some
    reason, I've found my burner will read CDs that my CD ROM doesn't like.

    One other thing, if it reads on the burner you might want to do a copy
    to a new CD, it might work better.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll give that a try. I did re-burn the ISO and on
    my initial try, during the copying of files, there were some errors = so I am
    trying it again. No rest for the weary!!

    Make sure to set your burner to burn at a slow speed. Has helped many get a
    good burn.

  7. John is right. We've seen a lot of bad burn issues over the last year, and
    they seem to be getting worse. Please use a burning program that does a
    verify pass, and try your burn at a slower speed.

    Also, just a reminder for anyone reading this thread - you must burn the ISO
    as an _image_ to the CD. Not copy the file to the CD.
