Windows 7 32-bit to 64-bit CI.dll & clfs.sys ERROR

Hello everyone,

I am attempting to install Windows 7 Professional 64-bit onto a system that's currently running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit ( I'll post a picture of specs below) I burnt the iso onto a blank dvd using magic iso and made sure to select the slowest write speed. Magic ISO successfully burnt and verified the image. I made sure that boot priority was set to the CD-ROM. Windows loaded the files onto the ram, and I got the following two errors:





I've tried to download a few different ISO's ( such as Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, and I even tried using my personal OEM Windows 7 professional CD) but I get the same issues. It runs Windows 7 Professional 32-bit flawlessly but my neighbor is really insisting for me to install the 64-bit version for him regardless of my recommendations.

The Specs:


For whatever reason I can install Windows 7 Professional 32-bit without a hassle, but any 64-bit will give me the previously mentioned errors.

So the issue is the iso not anything with the computer?

first you did not answer if they where legal os and to put a 64 on you need to format the drive and have 4 gig of memory also check the specs of your system oarts if it could run the 64

Of course they are legal, I'm a college student and I get 1 free copy of multiple Operating Systems through the Microsoft Dreamspark Program, but thank you for asking I understand the legal aspects behind this from another post. I never even go Windows 7 64-bit to load to where I was able to format, and this computer has an embarrassing 256mb of ram hahaha x_x I guess my question is if I were to buy more ram will it work then? Is that why I get the errors?

It usually helps when you add a question mark to the end of a question otherwise, one may never know it was a question.

forgot the question mark on post ,did you check if your system could handle the 64 bits os before buying new ram ? also system tell you to put the disc first then restart to be able to format the drive and install the 64 os

Could you explain to me how to check if the system is capable of running 64-bit? & I don't have the disk, but could I install the HDD onto another computer and format it via disk management then install?

Okay, so I ran the compatibility test, and posted the screenshot below. I also found the exact model of the PC from gateway's support website, hopefully it will come in handy.

Link to Specs : http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1008835/1008835sp3.sh...

I also went ahead and installed two different ram modules. I removed the 512mb of ram (2x256mb) of Corsair Platinum Series CMX256A - 3200C2PT (picture below)
and replaced it with 1gb (2x512mb) of Corsair Value Select vs512mb400 (picture below)






So now my new question is, can I install all 4 sticks of ram onto the motherboard even though they run at different voltages?

Thank you again for the help.

they could work but the xms is usually sell as dual channel kit there is a lot of them on e-bay mostly 512 to 1 gig kit also check if they have the same cas,but it is always better to have all the memory stick from the same model also you test is for the 32 bits os
