Sorry, I'm late guys, but I solved the problem on my own, and didn't
check back. First, "he" is actually a "she.":geek: Second, if we're
going down the literal path, my post says I -upgraded -my processor. I
tried to -install- the 64 program. Third, the screen froze and
literally, "nothing happens". My apologies for not clarifying that I
used powerISO to burn the disc, as a boot disc.
Okay enough about semantics.
I solved the problem by doing a clean install of Windows 7 RC, prepared
that burn disc using the same ISO program. Then I pre-ordered Windows 7
to install in October, and backed up everything I have two different
times, to two different drives.
Love 7, tickled pink with my new speed, and appreciate the help I found
here at the forums. Not bad for an old broad, if do I say so myself.
