Windows XP Professional X86 or X64 - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Wowzers at the rather throaty respones to other posters.

Anyways, aside from wireless adapters and some older 10/100 NIC's, I never saw a problem with x64 XP when I used it. Be known though, that you should have all of your pop's drivers saved prior to an installation. For me, Nforce drivers were MIA when it came to x64, but I saved myself the trouble and brought my own set to the table. Thank goodness for a seperate HDD partition.

Wow! I'm actually impressed. .... ..... ......

And how many people have that wifi card? I can provide several common features broken in Vista 64 over XP x64. ATITool, unsigned drivers (without a huge PITA), tcip patch and usb polling rate changers are broken due to the driver signing without a huge PITA also. My paid copy of DK 2007 does not work. Even the "vista compatible" version of it does not work. Unless I drop money for 2k8, which has zero new features.

Don't go crazy over the extra 500MB of ram that XP32 doesn't "see". It's not as simple as you think.

The correct answer would be that it only ALLOCATES 3.5gb to programs. The extra 500MB that you don't see is treated as a swap file - sort of like the paging file on your hard drive, only much much faster. So if the RAM is needed for one single program then yes this is bad, but if its needed for multiple programs at once then there is no difference other than MAYBE a 1/10th of a second delay when switching between programs when the memory is full.

Just be sure to add the /3gb option in your boot.ini file, and it will ensure better memory management.

Have you got a quick list of the hardware in that machine? Then you could check if it's supported in xp64 or see if anyone is having hassles with it.

Yes that is a very good question, to check with what hardware/software you have to see if there are any problems with driver support and such.

Ahem... I was mistaken. There is an XP x64 driver for that WiFi card. Get it here:

It's the fourth one down under "Windows".
