Windows 7 x64 finally!
 
 

A1xx, you will have to wipe your disk clean anyway to install XP, so maybe it is better to format it before.

Now, before you do it, can you give us your computer specs? Maybe it was some other problem, Windows 7 can run with low memory (although it won't be a stellar performance). Have you looked into this tutorial: Install Windows 7 on Computer with Less than 512MB RAM

Yes but they are not posted correctly. Do it once correctly and they will follow you on every thread and post. Click on user control panel on top. Then look for specs on the left.

If you have the full retail version of XP, just do a clean install, using the format option.
