It's 32-bit

It's called Windows XP

It's called Vista Basic Edition

Exactly what it says - your laptop has a 32-bit processor, so you can't
install a 64-bit operating system on it.

Re: what is 32 bit or 64 bit mean
The message means that you cannot install a 64bit operating system on a
computer with a 32bit cpu.

If you google on "32 bit versus 64 bit" you will get a ton of articles to
read like this one:

You find out what your computer is by looking it up on the Toshiba website.
I cannot find any references on the Toshiba website for a Satellite Pro 100.
The lowest model number for Satellite Pro is the 400 CDT and 400CS. Check
your model number and look it up on

Bunday--

Also you cannot upgrade 32 bit to 64 bit.

You may want to check out these sites:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/64bit/default.mspx

http://extended64.com/

There is a 64 bit MSFT newsgroup as well--just search using the term 64 in
the list.
