  1. Ok,

    i have a

    AMD Athlon 64bit 3400+
    512mb RAM
    50GB HDD
    GF4 Ti4200

    I have XP PRO installed and partitioned my drive to install xp 64bit BETA version (dual boot).

    I boot from cd and it starts loading the drivers then it says STARTING WINDOWS and it hangs there.

    Please help :blackeye:

    Boot from the normal XP-Pro CD, select Repair console, run FIXMBR and FIXBOOT.
    Check c:\boot.ini that there is only 1 OS in it, your current XP-Pro.
    Then try again to boot from the W64 CD

    The final version version for WinXP x86-64 has been released. If you have a proper XP Pro license, you can ask MS to provide you with an install CD for WinXP x86-64. It's no use playing around with the beta versions.
