Problem with x64

Are you trying to get it to do an upgrade rather than clean install?

Yes, he is - running it from the desktop.

You canot 'upgrade' from x86 to x86-64 sergio.

Well you could buy some more DVD's that would be the best thing to do and at least you have it there to reuse when you need it.

you'll have to get it burned somehow.

I know you can create a VHD, and if VHDs are simply ISOs it would work to create a VHD in your x86 install and then boot to it and let it install - but I don't think that is going to happen here like this.

Let me do some digging.

@Grim - no working *burner*

@John - would he have to make that thing bootable

Maybe but I have never tried.

If you feel like giving it a go then follow the instructions here but use your 160 instead of the memory stick/sd card

If you found a way to get the contents of the iso on to it and make it bootable, yes. I would have a look at the tutorial that applies to getting the files onto a USB device, i'm sure the same principles apply. But, check your BIOS boot menu to see if you can boot into a USB device. This option does not exisit on older BIOS'.
