  1. Can you install any OS? Can you be more specific in your description? It's hard to understand without more details.

    Did you unlock it before trying to install the OS?, if so then put it back to a dual then install the OS and unlock again once the OS is up and running.
  3. done that both windows are crashing on boot
  4. @huron I can install 32 OS:)
  5. It sounds like you are trying to"Upgrade" an existing 32 bit installation to 64 bit.

    That can *not* be done.

    You must do a clean install by booting to the intsallation disc and overwriting your existing setup. Your existing date and apps will be consolidated and moved to a new folder named 'WINDOWS_OLD'. You may retrieve your data. You will have to reinstall your applications.
  6. i did a clean install and still crash.
  7. found a solution:)) Linux
