Looks like there is no reason now for me NOT to switch to XP x64 for my main computer now

  1. The final 3 obstacles have been overcome.
    1. Sound drivers for my X-Fi card
    2. Drivers for my WebCam
    3. Drivers for my Printer

    I have a fully capable system in which to work in XP x64. Yeeeeeeeee
    Haaaaaaaaw. :)

    And your spelling passed spell check :)

  5. Although I have done everything in 64 bit in the past two weeks, I'm keeping
    XP Pro active since I paid for it and used it for about 2 days before I
    installed 64bit. Maybe I can activate it on another new build, because I
    certainly don't intend on using it if I don't have to....

  6. There's the ticket. Welcome to the fold. :)

  7. If it's the retail version. And you remove it from the current machine, you
    should be able to move it to another machine. If it's OEM, though, it's tied
    to the hardware.

  8. ROFLOL. Yes, I can even spell works like antidisestablishmentarians, and
    not look stupid. LOL

  9. Well it's OEM, but I never thought I'd be moving so quickly to 64 bit.
    Actually it's not a bad thing to keep the dual boot since it's sort of the
    ultimate safe mode, in case I bollix things up in 64 bit. I can't afford
    much down time on this machine... I've also got 4 more fresh XP Pro disks
    for future builds anyways (man I love that company credit card...;-)

  10. Sigh. I get to pay for my own. OTOH, this machine(the Ferrari) is running
    the Acer OEM copy that came with it on the C: partition, and the beta
    payback freebie of x64 Edition on D:, so I can't really complain. :)

    Spell check corrects spelling not words. did you perhaps mean words instead
    of works ;-)
    John Barnes, Nov 17, 2005
  12. Yes. :)

    Yes, and the helpers here at this board are part of the good fun - Da Costa,
    Russel, Barnes & others give good advice. Not me, I'm just a newbie.

    Glad to hear it. I'm snagging an X-Fi tonight to get away from the crap
    drivers for my A2ZS. (No, it's not good to reward Creative's failure to turn
    out good drivers, but hey, I wanted the card anyway.)

    Enjoy your new OS.

    Would I be out of line to ask where you found the drivers, Wayne, or anybody?
