Hello carputer93, welcome to Seven Forums!


You may need to acquire a USB stick to do the install with, the camera storage SD card may not function correctly; here's a tutorial showing how to format / create the installation media to use the USB stick and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

I would suggest the 32-bit but if you want try the 64-bit first and if that won't run do the 32-bit.

i as told 64 bit needed 2gb memory to install but you can do it with one but you might have a lil performance issues other than that should i just go with the 32 bit

Try the 64-bit and if it doesn't work well enough install the 32-bit, you have nothing to lose.
