hi all.
one of my friends laptop had come with 32 bit vista and 2gb memory.
he wants to upgrade to windows 8.1 64 bit.
i upgraded his memory to 4gb.
now starts the problem.
i made a dvd of win7PE 64 bit put it in the computer and tried booting
with sighted help but it doesnt boot.
i then copied the win7PE on the pendrive and also on a usb external
hard drive and tried booting from each.
still wont boot.
but the dvd pendrive and external hard drive all boot up properly on
my home laptop so there is no problem of a caruppted image.
now is there any way for me to upgrade to windows 8.1 64 bit?
oh ya i also tried booting from windows 8.1 dvd but wont boot.
and as normal i cannot run a 64 bit setup file on a 32 bit of windows.
i have 1 way but its risky and i dont know if it will work.
if i boot into vista and use disk manager or disk part and mark the c
drive as inactive may be i will be able to boot from hard drive or
pendrive or dvd but i think if it doesnt work i will have no way to
get in to the system so its risky.
sorry for the long mail please help me out people
