    I have a Acer Ferrari 4000, the operating system it came with is Xp 32 bit.
    I have the Ultimate Vista both 32 bit and 64 bit, I wanted to do a clean
    install of the Vista 64 bit but I am having a problem. When I insert the
    Vista 64 bit disc it says, "Setup can not run on this version of the
    Operating System. To install Windows please try booting from the install
    media." How can I install the 64 bit Vista?

    Make sure that your pc is set to boot from the DVD drive in your BIOS.
    Insert the 64 bit Vista DVD and reboot.

  3. Jane is, as always, correct. ;)

    And, just to be clear. Seveal of us here are running Vista 64bit on the
    Ferrari 4000. Works just fine.

    How did you go about doing a clean install of Vista 64 bit to your Ferrari
    4000? Is it correct that the only thing I need to do is set boot from the
    DVD drive in my BIOS, insert the 64 bit Vista DVD and reboot?

  7. You don't need a number. Reboot your machine. When it starts up, you press
    F2 to get into the BIOS. Go to the boot order section of the BIOS and change
    the boot order to put the DVD drive first. Exit and boot with the Vista DVD
    in the drive.
