Windows 7: Windows XP 64x on new laptop

Windows XP 64x on new laptop

Please if thread is in the wrong section, move it. I didn't know where to put it.

I got Acer Aspire ES1-511 and it has Windows 8.1 64x coz processor is 64x.. With only 1.89 ram memory i have to wait untill it open Chrome or even something lighter.. Right now i have Kubuntu 64x so i can work without much lagging. I tried Windows 7 32 bit coz i like it but drivers and graphic is only for 64 bit.. I wanna play some more complicated games as Sims 3 or so.. For great performance i would really and badly like to have Windows XP. So is it possible to have one 64 bit Windows XP coz of drivers support? I really don't have money to buy more rams, it's really expensive... I tried every drivers for Windows 7 32 bit even at Intel official site but they are not working.. Please guide me i really wanna make this computer better with lower system requriments but with full drivers support.. Thank You very much and i'm sorry for my english.

Welcome to the forum.

Most likely 64 bit XP drivers are not available. The manufacturers website shows drivers for Vista and later in both 32 and 64 bit versions. But for XP no such distinction is made, leading me to believe that only 32 bit drivers are available. 64 bit XP was never very popular and even in it's day driver support was spotty. Remember that a 64 bit OS must use 64 bit drivers. 64 bit drivers for Vista may work but I would tend to doubt it.

For gaming with less than 2 GB RAM you should stick to a 32 bit OS and even then performance will be limited. The minimum supported RAM for a 64 bit OS is 2 GB but more is needed for good performance. Your computer is not a game machine and nothing you can do will make it so.

Thank You for your fast answer.
I had desktop computer with 2 GB ram and 1.7 processor which i overclocked at almost 2.0. Sims 3 worked ok with some laggs. Computer died when i overclocked it more.. I got this laptop which is for procesor much better then dead computer so i think it should be better than on comp. Its just the system i want. I just want full driver support without laggs.. Thats all. Sims should be fine somehow.. I tried install Windows XP 32 bit but i can't coz of some AHCI or something like that. F6 thing and S doesn't show any available driver even with many tries at nLite thing.. Is there anything i could do, it doesn't need to be XP. Anything that wont lagg and full driver support.. Thank You!

Max out the RAM to at least 4gb to use 64 bit, otherwise I'd reinstall 32 bit which will install fine to AHCI. If you need help installing it to see for yourself, ask back and we will help you get it installed as we always do.

This time follow these steps for Clean Reinstall Windows 7 to assure you get and keep a perfect install.

AHCI work ok coz i can install Windows 7 32 bit, thing is i cant install other drivers like intel hd graphic so i cant get even get transparent start.. I triend EVERY driver and none of them work. Then i found somewhere that its 64 procesor and i must have 64 system for drivers full support. It came with Windows 8.1. It was awful lagging
