"classical" Win XP personal edition on 64-bit personal computer

    Hi,

    Until yesterday I've had a quite stable system running under WinXP personal
    edition including SP1 - SP2 didn't work for me, because my system always
    crashed, when I had it installed.

    Yesterday, I built in a new motherboard, so that now I've got a 64-bit
    system. I updated all my drivers to the latest versions, but my system is
    laggier and lamer than it has ever been before.

    So I started WinUpdate in order to look, if there are any updates for the
    "classic" WinXP to run on 64-bit systems and the only thing I could find,
    were updates FOR the WinXP 64-bit edition.
    The AutoUpdate has told me, that there are no further updates for my system
    (except SP2, which I don't want to install), but that can't be possible, for
    TECHNICALLY my pc should be twice as fast as before and practically it's
    twice as slow.

    Though I'm not a computer expert, I had friends of mine check my pc, who
    study computer stuff, and they told me, that everything was connected
    properly, that the drivers were correctly installed and that the only
    possible reason for the lagginess is WinXP.

    So my questions are:

    Is there an update for WinXP personal edition to run on 64-bit systems
    (optional: in German)?

    If there is: Why doesn't my AutoUpdate or my WinUpdate find it / look for it?

    Or: Do I have to buy an WinXP 64-bit edition upgrade?

    I'd be very grateful, if someone would help me. If there is a simple update,
    it would be very nice of You, to post a link to the download-adress, for - as
    I already said - I can't find it.

    cya,

    Samus

  3. The trial upgrade to 64 bits program ended last summer.
    It is better in any case to dual boot - see Barb Bowman's
    "Upgrading an AMD64 Turion Laptop to Windows XP x64 Edition"
    which is the second article listed in this search link:

    http://search.microsoft.com/search/...+to+64+bit+Windows+upgrade&swc=2&na=33&cm=512

    You would be better off using a newsreader rather than the
    web interface to view the group Carey suggested (recommended!)
    and this link to a message in that group about where to buy
    system builder 64bit XP should open in your newsreader if
    you copy the link and paste it in IE's address window:

    news://msnews.microsoft.com/%

    As a system builder, you would be the support provider for
    Windows according to item 8 of the OEM system builder license.
