Most cases the reason for that is because the processor is not x64. This is why you make sure to do the research before you buy ;)

It is a simple mistake that can be done by anyone, though. The only down side is that most places will not take os's back once they are bought. At least around here anyhow. I'm not sure about where you live.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
