How to change an operating system on the c:/ drive without destroying the information on the drive. Your email address: JCMCJMC68@YAHOO.COM


Your motherboard has to accept 64 bit OS before anything. If it is 32 bit only it will never load a 64 bit operating system. The easiest way to keep all your pictures, music and any other data files is to transfer them to an external USB drive. If you don't have the original software installation disks the software you have on the C drive won't run because the registry will have to be rebuilt. If you do get the 64 bit version of 7 to work, you'll have to upgrade most of your existing software to 64 bit versions. Example: installing a 32 bit version of Word will not run on a 64 bit machine.

Can't detect XP discs in win 64 bit


Hello Joe, 64-bit processing is faster than 32-bit processing because the CPU is handling more bits at once, However, a 64-bit OS requires more resource than a 32-bit OS, A 64-bit OS requires that device drivers operating in kernel mode be a 64-bit drivers, These drivers must be available from the device manufacturer. An application is compiled to process 64-bit or 32-bits. A 64-bit OS can run either 64-bit applications or 32-bit applications, but 64-bit applications are faster also 64-bit applications cannot run on a 32-bit OS.
A 32-bit OS can only address up to 4 GB of memory, More than that might be on the motherboard, but the OS cannot use it, because it does not have enough memory addresses to assign to the physical memory. A 64-bit OS theoretically can address up to 1 terabyte of memory although in practice, most motherboards can only hold from 12 to 16 GB of memory.( A terabyte is roughly 1000 GB or 1 trillion bytes). If you open many applications at the same time and have high computing needs and enough hard drive space and memory, you can benefit from 64-bit computing. To get most out of it, the processor, motherboard, operating system, drivers and applications must all be 64-bit, and you should have installed the maximum amount of memory the motherboard supports.

The motherboard has nothing to do with your problem. Its your processor it has to be a 64 bit processor. If you don't during the installation you will get an hardware error. Your windows 7 must of been a 32bit or aka 86x platform. So put windows 7 back on (recommended) or try windows xp pro 32bit

Check your system bios to ensure that ata is your chosen hard drive for installation. if you attempt to install on the mother boards default of ahci wich is windows vista or 7 default it will not work in order to install windows xp you must choose ata. as far as weather a 64 bit install is necessary, 32 bit will work on both but 64 bit windows must be installed on a 64 bit motherboard.

Can support p5gdx2 64 bite


Hi,

Yes that board is 64 bit compatible. You could load Windows XP 64 bit or WIndows 7 64 Bit. Just make sure you download all the 64 bit drivers from ASUS's site, or it won't work.

Thanks
Mark

Promble with Ram


No the problem isn't the ram, or video card, or lack of video cards.

The problem stems from using a 32 bit O/S, (Operating System), like Windows XP Home, or Windows XP Pro. (The 32 bit version of XP Pro. Microsoft made a 64-bit version of Windows XP Pro)

A 32 bit O/S will only 'recognize' UP TO 3.2GB's of ram. (Sometimes up to 3.5GB's)
You need a 64 bit O/S so that your computer will recognize all 4GB's of ram, when it is installed.

32 Bit? 64 Bit? What is all of this? It's kind of hard to explain in a few sentences. I would like to refer you to these links on Wikipedia, to explain 32 bit, and 64 bit further,

A.32-Bit:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/32_bit
B.64-Bit:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/64-bit
