  • Question

  • When will I be able to validate this OS?  And how is it that a new product cannot be validated right away?

    The microsoft.com/genuine downloads are only for operating systems that we have tested and validated for. Unfortunately, we haven't fully tested those downloads for 64 bit machines (as they are not designed for X64). (This also includes Tablet PC)

     

    I would recommend heading to http://download.microsoft.com to see what exact updates are available and confirmed for X64 bit to download there. I know this isn't the best method, but I do hope it helps.

    We currently do not validate 64 bit WindowsXP systems.

     

    We do not, however, block users if we don't validate their systems. Are you currently being blocked from a download?

     

    Thanks,
