Is Lenovo supporting Win7-64 on the VIA S12?

I have installed Windows7 64-bit on my VIA S12. Everything is running well, except I cannot installl Lenovo power management.

 

Is Lenovo going to support 64-bit on the VIA S12 and release drivers for 64-bit? Or is Lenovo only supporting Windows 7 32-bit on the VIA S12?

 

Why don't the ATOM and VIA S12's show up on the suported Windows 7 upgrade list?

 

Thanks,

Rob

curious to know why you would run 64-bit OS when you can't run more than 2gb RAM on that unit?

Win7 64-bit on the VIA is very peppy. I really like it and purchased the VIA unit because it could address the extra GB.
