Re: Vista x64 Ultimate (OEM version) on Dell D820
You will get an error message if you try to install Vista x64 from a 32 bit
desktop. To install any 64 bit version requires you to boot from the DVD.
Make sure that your BIOS is set to boot first from DVD.
Do make sure to back up all of your files and documents first, as 64 bit
must be clean installed. It cannot upgrade your current 32 bit operating
Jane, not plain
64 bit enabled :-)
Batteries not included. Braincell on vacation ;-)
