The advanced option seen in the EasyBCD tool there simply sets the mode to allow unsigned drivers to run. That's an option to set the boot mode while you still need to see a 64bit set of drivers/software while most tuners and tuner cards are strictly 32bit.



I had enough fun trying to get the XP software despite Vista driver updates working for an addon tuner card here in the 32bit Vista and 7 environment. I guess it pays to dual boot with a 32bit edition of something.

Then you need to find 64bit drivers/software if they provide them. I almost had the tv tuner card here going on the 64bit beta whlile waiting to see that connected online. The same grey screen with sound seen on the 32bit beta was a good sign when using the troubleshoot compatibility option when right clicking on the installer's executable for that.

yea they are 64-bit drivers, trouble is they are unsigned betas. They say they have submitted them for WQHL but itl take a couple of weeks.

Whenever I see the unsigned drivers prompt I typically click the install anyways option. So far that's worked out for seeing older 98 dsl drivers work for the 32bit editions and 7. If you see anything like that giving you an option to install give it a try on the 64bit there.

That's odd since when going into the add new device in 7 or any add new hardware on Vista or XP for the dsl adapter that will come up when selecting the original 98 version of the drivers. The Windows update will later show the XP update for those.

All this is still being seen on the 32bit versions however. I would think you would see that for 64bit drivers on any 64bit edition. It's simply a matter of getting 7 to accept the drivers unless since those are still beta there's a bug with them the finishet set will correct.
