Re: downgrade to xp

Have you read the sticky post regarding XP downgrade issue?, here

I recommend you to use XP-32bit, even for XP 32bit your model is still difficult to downgrade especially for beginner users.

 

You'll only have memory allocation advantage using XP64bit nothing else.

However, its do able but difficult to find the whole drivers.

 

BTW, I can not find any stores in my area that still selling XP-64bit.

 

Good luck.

Re: downgrade to xp

I know that it can be difficult to try the drivers, but Xp 32 bit didn't support 4 Gb RAM... That's why I want to use the 64 bit edition.

Have you any other solution?

 

Thanks!
