Setup Installation :: Moving From W8 32bit To 64bit?

Aug 23, 2013

I downloaded from Microsoft (so no disc) Windows 8 32bit. Didn't realise my 64bit compatible Dell laptop was not using all its 8gb of RAM then found out it couldn't with a 32bit OS.

Its just when I run some tasks like Handbrake conversion or DVD conversion processes it slows my web browsing to a snails pace and someone suggested I needed more RAM!...thus my investigating why only 2.99gb was being used.

Have I got to fork out for a totally new licence?..I can't remember if when I bought this version it asked me if I wanted 32 or 64 version!

Setup Installation :: Upgrading Windows 8 32bit To 64bit?

Mar 18, 2013

I have made a terrible mistake when I installed the Windows 8 90-Day evaluation. I have a 64-bit CPU (AMD 5800K) and 8GB of Ram, and I accidentally installed the 32-Bit version of the trial.

Is there any way I can upgrade without having to do a fresh re-install?

Setup Installation :: Clean Install Windows 8 64bit Over 32bit Using Another CD?

Jan 27, 2013

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 ..

Setup Installation :: Trying To Install Windows 8 32bit From 64bit Disk

Jan 10, 2014

I have a copy of Windows 8.1pro 64 bit which I run on my main computer, I have an old laptop which is about 7-8 years old, I'd like to install a copy of Win 8 for test purposes and mess around with for a few months.

The laptop is so old it won't let me install 64 bit, is there a 32 bit version on the disk hidden away I could install or are they totally separate disks?

Is it possible to download a copy which would work for 30 days without entering a serial number or even an old beta copy.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 64bit Won't Install On 32bit Vista Dell Inspiron 531

Aug 19, 2013

I have been given a dell inspiron 531 with 64 bit AMD processor, running 32 bit vista home basic, that has responded well to RAM upgrade to 4GB.

I want to install 64 bit win 8 pro media centre which I have on an original MS CD. either over current vista or on separate partition as dual boot.

For some reason the dell wont read the MS win 8 64 disk (or any other original MS OS disks I have (vista-32/7-64/8-32)) but reads pretty much everything else (DVD's excepted as currently has no DVD reading software.)..either through explorer or during is not only original ms discs that are a problem as dell won't read Windows 8-64 enterprise trial iso I burned myself either.

I have tried turning off security software (MS security essentials/MS firewall) change.

CD's all read fine via explorer on my lightly hopped up HP tx1340ea running win 8-64 pro media centre.

Setup Installation :: Operating System Wasn't Found - DELL XPS 420

I have a Dell XPS 420 and I've just bought an SSD for it. Every time I boot the machine I see "Operating system wasn't found" now, despite having booted into Windows successfully just before.

The only change I made was connecting a standard SATA 2TB drive - which it boots into fine - but now when I have removed the 2TB drive I cannot boot onto the SSD.

Setup Installation :: Acer Aspire V5 - No Operating System Found After Windows 8.1 Upgrade

Aug 11, 2014

Acer Aspire V5 laptop that was running an OEM Windows 8 to upgrade to 8.1.

After selecting the Upgrade to Windows 8.1 via the store, the system went through it's install procedure, however after it does an auto reboot, it gives you a blank screen with the message No Operating System found, in the upper left corner.

But, you can turn the machine off and back on, and it will boot just fine. However if you select restart it does the same thing "no operating system found", on restart and again you must power down and power back on.

I have searched for fixes, but all seem to point to some sort of re-install process. I am not to crazy about the idea of re-installing to factory settings or doing a repair back to Windows 8 and attempting to upgrade again, are their any known shorter fixes for this?

And if I do go back to Windows 8, and try to upgrade again, what is to say it won't happen again?

Setup Installation :: How To Remove Extra Login Tabs (Choose Operating System)

Feb 17, 2013

My PC is a dual boot system which had Win XP on disk1 and Win 7 on disk2.

When I installed Windows 8 several months ago, I chose to install it on disk1 and completely remove Win XP.

Everything works fine but my log-in screen now contains 4 start-up tabs instead of just 2 (see below):

Windows 8
Windows XP
Windows 7 (volume 1)
Windows 7

The only tabs which are valid are Windows 8 and Windows 7 (volume 1), the other 2 are non functional. How can I edit this screen and remove these tabs?

Upgrade From XP 32bit To Win 8 64bit - Installation Media Cannot Be Used

Oct 31, 2012

Apparently you cannot update from a 32-bit version of Windows (XP in my case) to 64-bit Win 8 using the Windows Upgrade Assistant and the downloadable $39.99 version, you have to purchase a boxed DVD set and do it that way.

No problem, I go to JB Hi-Fi and buy the $58 retail pack. Get home, do some backups, image of my C partition etc etc. Now I'm ready. I put the 64-bit DVD in the drive and stand back, waiting for Windows 8 loveliness to enter my world, but instead I'm greeted by this message:

"Your installation media cannot be used to install Windows"

"Your current version of Windows is 32-bit and does not match the architecture of the 64-bit installation media. Please insert the 32-bit media and restart Windows setup."

If I use the 32-bit disc, it gets further, to the point of going ahead. Except I don't want 32-bit.

My machine has a Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 mobo with Athlon II 635. The Windows upgrade assistant makes no mention of this being unsuitable. The reason I'm running 32-bit XP is because it's all I had at the time I built the box and just didn't get around to buying a 64-bit version of Win 7 (which were outrageously priced here in Oz).

I'm thinking I will just use the 32-bit disc and then upgrade it with the 64-bit disc but I don't really want to get all the way through and find that it won't do it then either. If I use the 32-bit disc will the 64-bit disc upgrade it afterwards?

Upgrading From 32bit Windows 8.1 To 64bit?

Basically, how do I upgrade to a 64 bit version of Windows 8.1?

Setup Installation :: Upgrade To Windows 8 Pro 64bit From Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

May 6, 2013

I wish to upgrade my pc from Windows 7 Home Premium 64 to Windows 8 Professional 64.

I have purchased and received the Windows 8 Professional (Upgrade Edition) 32/64 DVDs.

Do I need to disable Norton Internet Security (NIS) 2013, before I proceed with the upgrade (Keeping all apps, settings, and files) ?

Would I need to reinstall NIS 2013 after upgrade is completed ?

How long (on average) am I looking for the upgrade to fully complete from start to finish ?

And finally, does everything transfer successfully (as I'll be using the 'Keep all apps, settings, and files' option) ?

Browsers/Mail :: Using 32bit Element With IE 64bit

Jul 18, 2014

I am using Internet Eplorer 11.x 64 bit on Windows 8.1 Update 64 bit.

Unfortunately, I still have some 32 bit element as Browser Helper Objects (BHOs), toolbars and ActiveX controls.

Is there a solution to make sure that all these 32 bit elements work correctly with IE 11 64 bit?

Because I'm a system administrator, I would like that this solution would apply to all existing accounts and to those that I will create.
