  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.
