Please install 32bit, or signed 64bit drivers.

Question: Please install 32bit, or signed 64bit drivers.

So I am doing a fresh install of Win7 64bit on a machine I build a while back. It has a Rampage III Extreme with Marvell SATA III controller. I installed the drivers just fine when I build the machine. Now it won't let me install the SATA 6.0Gb/s drivers. I get the, "Please install 32bit, or signed 64bit drivers. . . " crap. I tried the drivers off the CD, from Asus's website, and Marvell. No dice. Any ideas?

Edit: FWIW I am installing off of a USB drive and there are two drives in RAID-1.

Preferred Solution: Please install 32bit, or signed 64bit drivers.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Please install 32bit, or signed 64bit drivers.

Are the drivers unsigned?

Answer:how do I install printer in win 7 64bit with only 32bit drivers

I would give it a try. 32-bit software works on Windows 64-bit. I would think the printer would also.

I'm waiting for some parts to roll in from newegg which will be used to build an almost new rig (hard drives, processor and the sound card will be migrated to new rig) and the 64bit version of Vista seems the only logical choice since I'll have 4gb ram and two ati 4870 cards running in crossfire. all my components/peripherals will be fine except for my fujitsu scansnap fi-5110EOX2 scanner. Fujitsu doesn't offer 64bit vista drivers for it. Is there a way to get Vista64 to somehow except the 32bit drivers? I know that I'm grasping at straws, but I thought that I'd ask anyway.
 

Answer:Is there a way to install 32bit drivers on a 64bit vista?

When you get it, hook it up, turn it on, and go into device manager. You should see a yellow !. Right click and update driver, search automatically, then use 'check online'. Sometimes you get lucky.

Also, my version of Vista Business x64allows me to edit the sharing properties and add additional drivers, including x86, for people who share the devices, but are using another version of windows. But I don't know if it would let you print if you use it if you install the x86 version, but not the x64.

OS: Win 7 64bit.

Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software?
Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that
default 32bit folder?
Thanks.

Answer:W7 64bit:Ok to install 32bit programs outside the 32bit programfolder?

Go ahead and install the program wherever you want. The different folders make no difference. It's just to help you keep track of which programs are 32-bit and which are 64-bit.

Hi this is my 1st post. i i hope i am not to noob. Any who:freak: I have Windows XP 32bit home on my comp now. I am going to be upgrading soon to a 64bit processor and I was wanting to know if anyone knows a web address where i can download a driver/patch that will make my Windows XP run in 64bit. If i remember correctly when the 64 bit processors 1st came out windows released a driver/patch to make XP run in 64bit. Now they sell the XP 64bit retail and i dont want to pay for it. I have looked all over Microsoft web page and google to try and find the patch/drivers with no luck. So any one that knows of a website or link where i can download the 64bit win XP drivers I WOULD BE "VERY" thankful thank you to anyone that responds.:beard:

Answer:Where can i download xp 32bit to 64bit drivers

Windows xp 64bit is an upgrade not just a driver/patch. Even if you have a 64bit proc you do not need tor run xp 64bit. In fact I would only run it if you have to. I have a 64bit proc and run 32bit xp and it does everything I need. Is there any particular reason why you need to run at 64bit?

Hello,
I have installed vista 32 bit on a partitioned drive of my vaio laptop which cam with windows 7 64 bit.
I have numbed myself to some of the issues i have with seven, but i can not use it for my music (WMP12 stinks, library issues).

I have vista up and running, but when the intel graphics card makes my laptop screen go dark but the external monitor is perfect. I have downloaded drivers from sony but when i try to install them i get the error " this in not for the my system".

Is there a way to not have sony software screening the drivers for compatibility? I have tried different compatibility combinations and yield no positive results.

I have considered upgrading to windows 7 ultimate so i can run vista within the windows seven. is that possible?

Thank you,
Chris

Answer:32bit drivers for 64bit system work around

Why not solve the "issues" with Windows 7 and stick with that? When you say you can't use it for your music, what do you mean? I don't know of anyone who uses WMP to manage their music. There are tons of good free apps to do this, such as Media Monkey.

You can also virtualize Vista in any version of Windows 7 using VirtualBox or VMWare Player, but that seems like it could be overkill for what you need. Fill in your system specs so we know how it would run on your system.

Hello everyone

Here's the thing, I'm trying to get my old Thrustmaster Tacticalboard game controller peripheral going again, problem is that it's a bit old by now, bought it in 2003.

One of the things that are necessary for it to work is the driver package is supposed to install a virtual Thrustmaster Keyboard and Thrustmaster Mouse drivers during the installation, but this isn't happening for me.

Drivers are 32bit, I'm running Win 7 64bit, drivers for this peripheral are no longer developed by Thrustmaster so there is no point asking them for help in this regard.

Basically Windows 7 installs it's default keyboard and mouse driver for this device and ignores the ones provided by the drivers package, which renders the device half-useless, keybinding isn't possible since the software doesn't see any device it's meant to modify, can't change any settings which isn't of any use for me since it's in need of pre-configuration to adjust it to your own individual needs/preferences.

Is there any way I can enforce use of these drivers? Or enforce the installer to put it's own drivers to use just for this device?

Maybe using Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit?

Would appreciate any help in this regard, it's a great tool for gaming, sadly discontinued and no longer supported with drivers, but if there is any way of getting it to work correctly it would be great!

Regards
M

So I messed up my laptop, it was Win 7 home 64bit. I formatted it and do a clean install, but I can only install 32bit. When I try to install 64bit, I get "hardware problem and installation could not be complete" what's that?

Answer:Able to install 32bit but not 64bit

Make sure it is 64-bit capable. If possible run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor . I would personally not run 64 bit on 3gb RAM but would want at least 4gb, so if it's 64-bit capable google a RAM upgrade for the model.

Boot into BIOS setup to see if there is an EFI Boot disk in the BIOS boot order Priority list. If so then either remove it and enable Legacy BIOS to install 64 bit normally, or follow these steps for UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums.

If not then post back the verbatim error message and at exactly which step it occurs during Clean Install Windows 7

Gonna reformat and set up a partition for 64 and 32 bit versions of XP. Which should I install first? Also, will I be able to change which OS boots up as the default at a later date or no? I mean I'm not sure if I want 64 to load up without hitting F8 or if I want 32 to be the one, so if I'm able to change that after the fact it's no big deal.

I have a slight issue.

I have downloaded Windows 10 and created multiple USB's using Rufus/Windows7 USB Tool/Even The Win 10 Creation tool, however everything time I try to install using UEFI the USB drive is never detected therefore it can't boot. I change it to legacy and it does boot and will only install the 32bit version...

I have downloaded the 64bit image only numerous times, created it with either with one of the above methods, even with Rufus settings correct, I can never install the 64bit version. As a test I did the same steps for Windows 8 media and it works fine under UEFI and install the 64bit version.

UEFI is selected in my bios, secure boot is off (even tried it with it on) - Even burn them all to DVD to no avail.

Has anyone else had issues doing a clean install with the 64bit media.

PS I even install the 64bit version of 8 then tried to run the setup within the ISO of 4 different downloads of either both images and the 64bit only image but all state that I need to insert the 64bit media and setup can not install.

Does anyone have any ideas??

Answer:Cant install 64bit only allows 32bit

Step One:

Create a 64-bit Windows 8.1 USB flash drive and then clean install Windows 8.1 64-bit.

How to download and clean install Windows 8.1 -> link

Here is info about UEFI Boot Mode (installing using the GPT partition style) and Legacy BIOS Boot Mode (installing using the MBR partition style). -> link

How do you select UEFI Boot Mode.

The UEFI firmware settings determines what type of boot devices are available in the boot menu: UEFI, Legacy BIOS (aka CSM), or both types of boot devices.

Normally, you do not need to turn Secure Boot off to install Windows 8/8.1/10 in UEFI Boot Mode. You only need to turn Secure Boot off to install Windows 7.

You do not need to change the boot order of drives in your UEFI firmware settings.

- Connect your Windows 8/10 64-bit USB flash drive (Note: FAT32 file system) or insert your Windows 8/10 64-bit DVD.
- Restart the computer.
- Press the correct key to enter the boot menu (Esc, F8, F9, F10, F11, F12).
- Select to boot from the "UEFI: USB/DVD device name" (see screenshot below).



Step Two:

Create a 64-bit Windows 10 USB flash drive.

Answer:How do I install 64bit from 32bit?

Hello Jimmy, and welcome to Vista Forums.

The tutorial is for doing a clean install with retail Vista installation media instead. What you would be doing is considered a factory recovery of Vista on your HP computer instead.

I haven't seen where you could select between 32-bit or 64-bit before, but you might see if the link below may help.

Toshiba is really the best notebook I saw! I had to change my HD because of a hardware failure (disk dead); before this I made a "recovery disk" from Toshiba system. I thought I would have just to boot from this DVD to reinstall all. BIG ERROR!

So I booted fro this DVD, process goes on (about one hour, already a great delay!), BUT a few drivers, especially the wireless one, cannot be installed! I get a message that "Drivers must be signed and so cannot be installed", and am kindly invited to get the "right drivers"!

On the website Toshiba there is no "right driver", I got those that are supposed to be for me, but always receive the same Windows message.

So what to do?!! This "recovery disk" does not even recover the correct drivers? What a great joke !!!! And of course the computer was sold without any DVD!

What BIOS settings did you change exactly?
Usually you need to disable the secure boot and have to change the boot mode from UEFI to CSM mode.

By the way: did you use the clean original Microsoft installation disk to install the system or did you use an ?image? backup for OS installation?

Hey guys,

I'm getting a new Macbook Air without an optical drive in a couple of weeks so I'm trying to create a bootable USB drive so I can install Windows 7 on it on day one (can't live without a bit of Windows 7)

I'm currently running Windows 7 on my Dell XPS M1330 which is a 32 bit install, but I want to create a 64bit bootable USB (the new version of Windows 7 I have is 64 bit and the new computer has 4 gig of ram).

When I try and do this through Microsoft's USB DVD Download tool, though, I get an error:

'Files copied successfully. However, we were unable to run bootsect to make the USB device bootable. If you need assistance with bootsect, please click the "Online Help" link above for more information.'

The online help section didn't even mention bootsect, but I'm pretty sure this is an issue because I'm trying to create a bootable USB install stick of a 64 bit version from a 32 bit version.

So I removed a virus infection in ie9 32 bit by replacing the whole internet explorer folder from program files (x86) with the internet explorer folder from the 64 bit program files.
Now I need to compile projects in Visual Studio , the program needs the 32 bit version of ieproxy.dll but when I add the 32bit backed up version I cannot browse the internet, IE won't even startup at all! So I replaced it back, I don't have a system restore point from before the 'shit'. Also using 'turn windows features on or off' doesn't seem to fix my browser problem, it remains 64bit.

I have downloaded the 32bit installer but it says the 64bit OS is not supported! What the Heck? ! So I extracted the contents of the package with Universal Extractor but it's a huge mess.. I don't know what to copy and paste etc.. about a few hundred thousanmd dll inf and exe files just to install ie9 32bit?

Edit:
Also I did run "sfc /scannow" to remove the virus from my computer, but IE9 32 bit still remained infected! conclusion: sfc does not repair IE.
addition : I also ran sfc /scannow to remove the virus from my system but IE9 remained affected, that is why I did the above steps!

Please help me out, can somebody upload their %program files (x86)%/Internet Explorer/ directory, please? (internet explorer 9 ofcourse).

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Cannot install IE9 32bit on 64bit W7 OS! Really need help after virus!

For 64-bit systems, you need to download and install the 64-bit version of IE9. The 64-bit version also includes the 32-bit edition, and both will be installed.

Hello everyone,

Only just discovered this forum - looks really interesting. I currently have an OEM copy of Vista 32bit which I run quite happily, but would like to install x64 on another hard disc to test it out etc.

I can borrow an x64 installation disc from a friend, can I install and activate x64 using my 32 bit key? Like I said, its the same system but will be installed on another hard disc ...

Will it allow me to activate? Or do I have to buy another copy of x64 OEM?

Thanks all for any replies.

Hello and thanks in advance for your help.

I currently have two 64 bit laptops that I'd like to downgrade to Windows XP Pro 32 bit.

Both are HP dv6 models.

The first is I believe a dv6-1350us and is running Windows Vista.

According to the tech guy he says I have to install a 64-bit operating system like XP Pro 64. I'd like to confirm if this is really true or not.

The second computer is dv6-1355dx and running Windows 7 Home Premium. So can I downgrade this to XP Pro 32 bit?

Supposedly there are drivers available to make this change. But according to my tech guy he believes I have to use a 64 bit operating system with a 64 bit machine. So maybe Windows XP Pro 64 bit would work.

Any help or suggestions would be great.

Thanks

Hi,
I have Window 7 Ultimate official box set and installed the 32bit in my old PC few years ago, it was fine till recently the hardware failure from time to time, so I bought yesterday a new set PC (DIY) without OS.
Now I want to transfer the Window 7 license to the new one but use 64bit version. I fully understand the license key only work for 1 PC, therefore I intend to deactivate/ uninstall 32bit in old PC, and use the same key (I read your forums and it should work) for 64bit in the new PC.
Could anybody help to let me know the procedures for deactivate/ uninstall the 32bit from the old PC? prefer step by step, as I am not good at such modification work.
I wonder this procedure should not just been done in the old PC only, I expect it should use LAN connect to Microsoft Web somewhere, to let their product key register servers know that I did uninstall 32bit, so that the product key will be valid again. Please let me know the procedure of that and is this connection/ register servers are regional related (i.e. globally all in US MS HQ or in local MS office Asia)?
Moreover, I believe the installation of 64bit in new PC just like the fresh new installation. Load the software and key in the product key to complete. If any problem or points need to be noted, please kindly advise me as well.
Thanks for your help.

On an old laptop, I was trying to install windows 7 64 bit but was told that the device only supports 32bit.
That determines how a PC can run 32 bit instead of 64 bit?

Answer:can only install window 7 32bit not 64bit.

It depends on if the CPU is 32bit or 64bit. You can find out your CPU bit by using the GRC utility here. Yours  will show as 32bit.

Answer:[SOLVED] Can i install 64bit os on 32bit pc

First and foremost, your laptop must have a 64-bit processor (CPU) in order for it to able to run 64-bit Windows. You can determine that in this manner:

Open Performance Information and Tools by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Performance Information and Tools.

Click View and print details.

In the System section, you can see what type of operating system you're currently running under System type. Under 64-bit capable, you can see whether you can run a 64-bit version of Windows (it will say "Yes" or "No").

If your laptop is 64-bit capable, you then need to check that your PC manufacturer has 64-bit Windows 7 drivers for it on their website, because you cannot use 32-bit drivers on 64-bit Windows.

Additonally, any external devices (eg printer, scanner etc.) that you intend to use on that laptop will also need 64-bit Windows 7 drivers, so check those manufacturer's websites too.

If you can tick all the boxes to the above requirements, you can install 64-bit windows 7.

Forgive me if this is the wrong place to post this, but I just joined and still figuring out Windows Seven Forums, so I apologize in advance.

I currently have Windows 7 Home Premium running on my desktop that is about 3 years old (give or take a month or two) and I have the 64bit version on my laptop (which is about a year old) and love both. However, I do most of my work on my desktop, and would like the comfort of 64bit.

I'm aware that you can't upgrade 32bit to 64bit, so I've been contemplating the option of saving all my important content and then doing a fresh install of the 64bit Windows 7 Professional, then putting my info back on the computer.

Is this realistic thinking? Or am I better off just living with 32bit until this computer craps out, then buy a new one eventually? I can only imagine with all the data and programs I have, that it seems like a bit of a long shot to somehow preserve all the data from the last 3 years, and reinstall all my programs and expect things to work without any problems.

When going from 32 to 64 you do need to do a clean install. You will have to re-install you apps not matter what. You may be able to import the data if its application has an import function

The "comfort" of 64 bit? How do you use your computer? any heavy usage apps?

If you have upgraded the notebook to 4GB RAM you should install Windows 7 64bit. On all 32bit OS you can only use ~3.2GB due the 32bit limitation.

That?s also the difference between 32bit and 64bit, the supported RAM size. ;)

However if I try to install the 32 bit version, it loads the files and moves on to select language etc - basically it looks fine.

I have flashed the BIOS to the latest version. The main board is ASUS Z87M-PLUS.

Apologies if question has been asked before. Microsoft informs me that I have 143Mb to update, on looking at the updates prior to downloading & installing, I notice that 80+Mb is for windows 32 bit system, I am running 64bit, is it advisable to install, if not how do I rid myself of the nag that reminds me daily?

Answer:To do or not to do that is the question! 32bit / 64bit install updates

If you are using 32-bit software on your 64-bit computer you will receive relevant updates for the applications in question.

It is quite safe to install the 32-bit updates and you should do so.

If you look under the C drive in Windows Explorer, you'll see two folders: Program Files & Program Files (x86).

The former stores 64-bit programs while the latter stores 32-bit programs.

So I upgraded to Windows 8 from XP via unlock key without CD, forgetting that it'd be 32bit too.. I'm making a rebuild soon and I think 64bit would really benefit me, apart from some programs I use that are being discontinued in 32bit. A friend of mine recently upgraded to Win 8 too, but he bought the CD. Could I use his CD to overwrite my Win 8 32bit with a 64bit one? And another question: if I could (and I hope I can) is there an option during install to leave some free space for Linux? Having Windows 8 only is not safe ..

Hello everybody,

I have the Satellite A100-003 and I have been running it with Windows XP since I got it(downgraded). Now I want to install Windows 7 on it, however, I am confused about what I can install on it.

I some places on the Toshiba site, I have found that I can install Windows 7 (32 and 64bit) but I may run into some problems with the BIOS, in other places I have tried but could not find any drivers for Windows 7 64bit.

So what is the case? My first goal is to install windows 7 64 bit, because I have 4GB RAM on my laptop, but even the 32bit would be a better choice than XP right now.
So, can I install Windows 7 64 bit on my laptop?

Thank you in advance for any reply!

Answer:Satellite A100-003 - Can I install Windows 7 32bit or 64bit?

Hello

Important is before you install another OS, that you check the Toshiba driver download page. Satellite A100-003 belongs to PSAARE series and therefore are no Windows 7 drivers available. You can only get drivers for Windows XP and Vista 32bit.

That means you can try to install Windows 7 because the most Vista drivers also work on Windows 7.
If not you must search newer drivers yourself, maybe you can find something.

I want to try the 64bit version of Vista before committing to a permanent change from 32. I don't want to dual boot. Rather than asking you how, I'm hoping you can instead just react to what I think might work. I would appreciate any insights. I'm using Vista Business 32bit (upgrade, retail) using 26gb hd space, w/apps.

I have downloads of all 64bit drivers ready on CD and floppy for nVidia 590 chipset, 7600GT /oc, etc. I also purchased 64bit option DVD from MS for $10 that relies on the same installation key as current install.

This is my planned approach:

1. Physically disconnect my Vista 32bit HD
2. Remove 2gb RAM to avoid 4gb 64 install issues.
3. Boot the 64bit DVD and point setup to a separate drive (I have an older Raptor 36gb) reformatted with NTFS.
4. Say "no" to entering the key during setup, and uncheck Auto Activation box.
5. Complete basic install, including all 64 bit drivers, but without adding programs.
6. Reinstall 2gb and check for stability w/4gb total. Remove 2gb again, just in case.
7. Reboot Vista 64 DVD, and "upgrade" with key, but without Auto Activate box checked.
8 . Reinstall 2gb RAM and test out all critical applications during unactivated "trial period".
9. If satisfied, Activate 64 by phone, as replacement of 32. if not-step 12.

Answer:[SOLVED] Will this Vista 32bit to 64bit install work?

I went ahead with this this morning. Booting from the dvd offered only a clean install so I did not have to do the repeat install trick. All went well with a glitch free install. When I added back the extra 2gb though I got a BSOD on all bootups (I thought the issue with V64 and 4gb was with installing, not running!).

Updating the Crosshair BIOS to 904 solved that completely. Now running fine with all 4gb seen. Windows Experience Index dropped from 5.5 to 5.4 on the processor, with no change in BIOS settings - don't know why or really care - just curious.

The only problem I've encountered is that PCTools Spy Doctor will not install on Vista 64. Displays message that it is incompatible. Too bad, it is one o the best anti-spy apps. I'll live with it. All other 32 bit apps are automatically installed into an separate x86 Programs folder.

I have a 30 trial period in which to experiment. If all OK, I'll delete 32 bit and activate 64 with same key.

Answer:how to install 32bit PrintShop Delux on 64bit WIN7?

If that is the really old PrintShop DLX that I remember from the mid 1990's then it probably is a 32bit program with a 16bit installer originally intended for Windows 95 and '98, then it will not be able to install on that machine. Windows 7, especially the 64bit variety, does not support the 16bit installer any longer. The latest that it would have worked would be 32bit XP if installed under '95 compatibility settings.If it is not as old as I think it is, then try installing it under XP compatibility. If this does not work, then it is probably as I described above and will not work.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Manually Create Bootable Windows 7 Installation USB Flash Drive
Warning
Using this method:
You can only create a 64-bit Windows 7 bootable USB flash drive if your current Windows 7 installation is also 64-bit."

I'm having trouble creating a bootable USB Flash drive with a 64bit Win7 ISO, I downloaded the Win7 64bit and also the Windows7-USB-DVD-Download-Tool, Keep getting the error unable to make USB Flash bootable.

Is it going to be impossible becaue my system is now 32bit?


In the second Red Warning area in the tutorial it says it clear enough. If it wasn't true you can bet your bottom dollar that Brink would not have said it!

how to install windows vista 32bit on a 64bit disc or computer?

i can't find any good site which tells me how to install windows vista 32bit with a 64bit disc, i don't know if my computer is 32bit or 64bit, i wanna install 32bit not 64bit, i need a site with screenshots or video
 

Answer:how to install windows vista 32bit on a 64bit disc or computer?

The disks are different. Vista comes in 64-bit and a 32-bit DVDs. If you want to install the 32-bit version, you need to have the 32-bit DVD. Vista Ultimate, for example, comes with two DVDs; the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions.

I have an older laptop (Lenovo X200, Core2duo P8600) with 3gb RAM. My OEM preload was a 64bit version of Win 7. So, when I finally did an upgrade yesterday it was to an x64 version of 10. It is activated with the "digital entitlement" thing. (Win 10 Pro, v. 1511, build 10586.104)

So, the first thing I have to decide is whether to stay on x64 or not at 3gb ram. I know the common advice is under 4gb go 32; 4gb and over, go 64. But really, at 3gb I can go either way.

The question I have though is this: At the point that I go to do a clean install, if I choose to install 32bit, will it still activate? Will I have any problems by changing x64 to x86? Will the digital entitlement still work?

Answer:Can I change from 64bit to 32bit on clean install (digital entitle)?

Hello texasnightowl, and welcome to Ten Forums.

Yes, the digital entitlement will activate either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of that edition.

Last thing sales tech showed me to select 64-bit when I start computer at home.
That option did not occur when it installed.
Went back to store, and another sales tech shows me to press 'on' button then continuously press F10.

Up pops option of 32-bit or 64-bit. Simple!
Go home to try - cannot replicate it. Get something like 'boot from partition 2' instead.
Every forum omits to describe those details, like we are supposed to be born with the knowledge.

What should I be doing - what am I doing wrong?
Is there another step he did so fast, that I did not see?

Answer:Satellite L - How to start a 'clean install' to change from 32bit to 64bit?

Hi

If you want to change the system to 64bit, then you have to start the system HDD recovery!

You have to power up the unit and have to press F8.
Then choose Repair my Computer.
Now you will need to choose HDD recovery.
During this process you should be asked if you want to choose 32bit or 64bit?

But this is an option only for notebook preinstalled with both systems!
What Satellite series do you have exactly?

Hi

I have upgraded my NB550D to Windows7 Home Premium and installed 4Gb RAM.
It's working much better but want to go further and do a _clean install_ of Windows7 Ultimate _64bit_ in order to take full advantage of theupgrade in RAM.

My question is: What do I do about the Toshiba drivers for 64bit? I presume i will need some?

What is the best way to go about the upgrade - any help will be appreciated! :D

Answer:NB550D - Best way to install Win 7 64bit and 64bit drivers

If you would switch to Win 7 64bit then you will need some Win 7 64bit drivers.
On the Toshiba European driver page I could find some 64bit drivers but it looks like not all Toshiba tools for Win 7 64bit are released.

Drivers for WLan or BT stack can be found here:
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/bluetooth/

All other drivers or Toshiba tools like value added package or Face Recognition, Eco Utility and others could be used from other notebook series? for example Satellite C660D or other series like L750D, L755D or C670D
Surely you have to pay attention to the built in graphic chip, LAN or chipset?
Use the drivers which are released for the chips in NB550D

My 3000 J 115 Windows Vista Home Premium desktop configuration is as follows:- an EISA area- 2 SATA HDD- 2 IDE HDD- 1 IDE DVD-RW drive I changed the BIOS boot order so that the CD/DVD drive is first. Upon rebooting, the CD/DVD drive light comes on at bootup time, but later it proceeds to boot from HDD. I tried removing all other HDDs from the boot device list so that the CD/DVD drive is the only boot device - then I get the msg "NTLDR is missing. Press CtrlAltDel to restart". The machine will boot only if the C drive HDD is on the bootable device list - the C drive is on the original disk that came with the machine (that disk also has the EISA partition). And then, it wont boot from the CD/DVD even if it is the first on the boot device list. Finally, it shows up all OS's on the OS selection screen at bootup even when the HDDs on which those OS's reside are not present in the boot list (I guess this is again because of the EISA). I need to boot from the CD/DVD to do a clean install of Windows7 64bit from the bootable Windows installation CD. How can I get my machine to do that? (I checked my jumper and cable settings for the IDE drives and they seem to be ok)

Hey there newbprof,
 
To Install Windows 7 on a machine you will need to make sure you meet the following requirements:
 
- 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64)processor
- 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
- 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
- DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
 
I pulled this information from Microsoft site that may be important for you:
Can I upgrade from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 8?           

Yes, but you can't do this using Upgrade Assistant. If your PC has a 64-bit capable processor (CPU) but is currently running a 32-bit version of Windows, you can install a 64-bit version of Windows 8 Pro, but you'll need to buy it as a DVD and perform a custom installation. If available in your country or region, you can buy Windows 8 Pro from a participating retail store. You can also buy it online from the Microsoft Store in Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan,  Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and  United States.
Please note that the Windows 8 Pro Pack is used to upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8 Pro, and is not for cross-architecture installs and does not include any media. If you want to change architectures, purchase Windows 8 Pro.

Hi all,

I am not a huge liker with Windows 7 and the concept of the 64bit system. Lots of programs and games I used to use don't work and some new software still doesn't seem to work with 64bit systems.

So my question is, even if I loaded WinXP 32Bit on my 64bit machine which now has Win7 64bit, will my chances of running older 32bit programs increase or is it up to the 64bit processor and not the OS to determine if I can use older software or not?

Answer:If using WinXP 32bit on 64bit comp. My chances of using 32bit software increase?

You won't have, or shouldn't have any problems because of the CPU.

I suggest making sure you can find WinXP 32-bit Drivers for all of your equipment.

How much ram does your system have? The 32-bit version of XP will only use 4GB of memory total, that's 4GB counting the memory on the video card and any other component with on-board memory.

G'day all! (first post here!! :P)

Ok..so this is my situation:

I have a server...and i have installed a printer to it - the Canon LBP 3200 - the server is a 32bit machine running win7 pro...anyways...this printer does not have ANY 64bit drivers (which my main machine runs win7 ulti x64) so i am unable to install the printer on my main machine...

I was wondering, is there a way to share it from the server to the 64bit machine without installing any drivers?

Or is there a way to install 32bit drivers on a 64bit Machine?

Or can anyone find any 64 bit drivers/custom 64bit drivers?

:S

Thanx all!!

Answer:Sharing a printer from 32bit machine to 64bit machine without drivers.

A dialogue box will appear asking for you to enter a port name. Type in the \\computer name\printer name ie. My computer's name is basement and the printer name is EpsonSty so I typed in \\basement\epsonsty

But when i make my own port name it says access is denied... :S

How do I seamlessly make a triple boot of XP (32bit), 7 (64bit), Ubuntu (64bit) on a single 3TB hard drive without needing to switch between UEFI and BIOS? I'm trying to make 7 the largest partition, and the other two smaller. I know MBR has a 2TB limit, but is that limit per drive or per partition?

Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Triple boot XP (32bit), 7 (64bit), Ubuntu (64bit) on a 3TB drive

Partition the drive into the 3 sizes you want. Install XP first, then 7, and Ubuntu last so grub doesn't get messed up. It would be easier and quicker to just install windows 7 and then make Vm's of XP and Ubuntu though. Is there any reason those can't be virtualized?

Hello

I have purchased and downloaded both 32 bit and 64 bit Windows7 Professional (no CDs or media here only download version)

I sucessfully upgraded from Vista 32 to Win7 32

Then I upgraded my hard disk (140Gb 500GB) and RAM (3GB to to 4GB)

Now I would like to go from Win7 32bit to 64bit

When I try and run the Win7-P-retail-en-us.x64.exe file it upacks the box then stops with this error:"We are unable to create or save files in the folder in which this application was downloaded. Please check the folder properties to make sure that you have security permission on the folder to write flies and that that folder is not read only"
I am the System Admin and I have full rights, and have moved the exe and the setup box files to My Documentsand I have modified the directory properties/attributes but I still get the same error over and over.

I searched the posts and some people stated one needs a clean install others say you can upgrade from any version so I am trying the upgrade here especially since the upgrade from Vista 32 to Win7 32 was smooth and did require all the extra work of a reinstall.

Can someone help me here?

Thanks

Answer:Win7 (32bit) to Win7 (64bit) upgrade install error

I believe to go from 32-bit to 64-bit, you will have to boot off the DVD. The installer is a 64 bit application that won't run under 32-bit. Find instructions to create a DVD if you don't already have it.

Good luck!

I've been trying to update my Touchsmart IQ506's video drivers for the Nvidia 9300GS.

This has not been going well, the current drivers I'm trying to install are 186.03_notebook_winvista I've already made sure I'm using the 64bit drivers.

Currently when I check Run As Administrator, the installation screen tells me I'm trying to install 64bit Drivers on a 32bit OS.

but when I don't have Run as administrator, the installation screen tells me that there is no compatible hardware in my computer.

HP's website says the latest drivers are 17x.xx, I'd rather install from the gpu manufacturer, to begin with, because as I've noticed with dell, they don't update the drivers on their site often.

I've tried changing where the drivers extract with no luck.

I'm starting to think that either HP has a driver lock, so you need HP signed drivers to update, or the Touchscreen is interfering with the installation.

Hey,

the problem is that I installed yesterday Windows 7 Proffesional 64-Bit. Before I was using Vista Home Premium 32-Bit, so it got to be a clean install. I dowloaded all of the drivers for my model of notebook (Satellite L500D-10R) from Toshiba's site. The problem now is that not all of them can be installed because with several I get the error message, e.g. with Chip Set Utility I get the error of "this system doesn't meet the minimal requirements...", besides, when trying to install Eco Utility I get an empy message and the installation stops. What can be the problem here?

And what's with wireless connection. When I plug the ethernet cable in the Internet works properly, but when I'm trying to connect to my router (ofc ethernet cable unplugged) it can't identify my computer and gives me an error of the network interface controller and says the reason is 0x00028001.

Here's the error message (sorry for the language):

Hi mate,

Regarding the Intel chipset error message I can only suggest installing this dirver manual via device manager. I had the same problem and so I could install the chipset driver!
Check this!!!

Regarding Eco Utility you should install all driver firstly and then the tools. Value Added Package should be the first Toshiba tool that you install.

Have you installed a driver for your WLAN card?

Maybe you should restore factory settings if you are not an expert with driver installation? ;)

Answer:Installed 64bit cpu now graphic drivers dont install...?

Hope you mean a "dual core" (two cores) and not a "duel core" (fighting cores...)

But do we take it you changed motherboard etc without reinstalling Windows?
If that is the case, all the chipset drivers are being force fed the wrong code and chaos will reign.

You can use the OS drop-down to limit the display to Win7x64 drivers to see what's available. The chipset driver *may* address a couple of your listed items. The others may require deeper digging.

Hi All,

Some advice please,

On a fresh install of windows 7 (Ultimate ) 64bit, is it best to install the chipset drivers 1st ? and am I best using windows own drivers or MOBO ( Asus ) manufacturers Drivers ?.

I assume all other drivers can be installed in any order after chipset drivers ?
