The problem
by Jimmy Greystone / November 15, 2012 10:51 PM PST

The problem is XP x64 was never really intended for widespread use. That's why it was only ever sold as OEM, and Microsoft killed off support for it before SP3 came along. XP x64 was just meant to hold over people who had specific need for a 64-bit OS that were getting impatient over how long Vista was taking to come out.

These are the kinds of issues, along with poor driver support, that comes with using an OS like XP x64. So if that is a problem, I'd suggest you figure out some kind of alternate situation. I'd recommend moving away from XP x64 regardless since it has not been supported for quite some time, and there are a number of security issues in XP that have not been, and will not be, fixed in the x64 version.

This one is upsetting to XP64 owners.

There is no known supported version of that. Most XP64 owners know why. Do you need to read why?
