x64 on Linx 7

Postby eskimosound » August 17th, 2015, 9:18 pm

I've been googling and reading around but I have not concluded whether you can run x64bit Windows on the 7?
Is it possible or is the BIOS stopping it?
Plus how do you get into the BIOS screen, I mean the real BIOS, not he blue reset windows screen.

These devices are locked down with a 32bit EFI so without re-flashing it isn't possible to install 64bit Windows. With the amount of RAM in these devices I'm not sure that 64bit is an issue in any case.

I don't mind reflashing, I've upgraded to Windows 10 pro no hassels but I'm thinking I could have done x64bit....but yep probs not enough ram but I know from my desktop that x64bit is rock steady.
Now if I want to go back to Windows 8, geesh... this is causing a real problem.
So far not been able to downgrade!!

Unfortunately, not possible.

WIndows x64 must boot from a 64-bit EFI - which isn't available for the Linx (and infact MOST bay trail devices).
