Yeah i have a image of windows xp 2007 sp2 x64. so a couple of questions i wanted to ask first one is i have a AMD 3800 which im positive is a 64 bit processor. Does this mean i can run a 64 bit version of windows and if thats true what are the diferences between running a 32 bit version on a 64 bit processor and what are the things that u gain when u run a 64 bit version with a 64 bit processor? Im not sure if the current one running on my system is 32 or 64 bit but i need to reformat and so i got this 64 bit version to give it a geez and ive herd that if u have a 32 bit version with a 64 bit processor ur computer isent running as fast as it should be. But yeah the real problem here is that ive just burned the disk image to a dvd and it doesent work in boot ??? and ive allso xtracted the files to the desktop and tried just clicking the setup exe but it ses
SETUP.EXE is not a valid win32 application ? can some one please xplain all this shit to me and some other ideas or ways to get it working properly?

Thanks julz

As far as the processor 32 verses 64 bit / 32 or 64 bit version OS
I would search the sites that sell them and search reviews on the processor differences as wel as the OS difference of 32 bit verses 64 bit.

As far as buring a image of your hd, have you ever used a software called :

For Backup purposes there are :

1) Geniesoft

2) Stomp backup my pc / this link is for a review.

3) backup my pc link and a review

4) Winbackup

5) Norton Ghost

6) Acronis True Image

7) Paragon Drive Backup

8) LifeGuard

9) Backup Plus is a software for backing up cd's and data

10) Genie Backup Manager / same as # 9

11) True Image Server

12) Fast Track Backup

13) Nova Backup

It's inder Nero Smartstart. You need to select Burn Image to disc. You might need an update though.

its probs not a bootable disc. i cant remember how you make one but i know on my version of xp i "got hold of" it had an "autorun" text file with some lines of code simular to this: [autorun=setup.exe][icon=setup.exe]. maybe that had something to do with it. i dont really know. ive never had much luck with bootable discs
