You can download the Win XP 64 bit edition from the microsoft website or you can get them to mail it to you. Either way you are gonna have to pay a small fee.

Blah

My eval copy of Win64 on CD cost 11.99 (supposedly for shipping)

I wouldnt sweat trying to get a hold of it yet...cause finding drivers BLOWS!

About the only thing I can do on mine is surf the net, run super pi, and fold...
