my Thinkpad Edge 13 is DOS-free and i am trying to install Windows XP Pro 64 bit Edition to my Edge laptop but it is giving some errors :/ i dont know if i am doing right or what can the problem may be.
i want to use x64 because i have 4GB of RAM, so i want full capacity of use.
1. i used rufus program to make bootable XP usb drive. and it extracted .iso file into usb key without any problem
2. i changed BIOS settings > config > SATA > from AHCI to Compatible mode.
3. BIOS startup > i set Boot order > 1- USB HDD , 2-ATA HDD HITACHI
x64 boots from usb telling : - press any key to boot from usb... , but when i press any key it is givving " BOOTMGR missing " error.
x86 goes fine during boot. but it is giving another error in setup screen :
here is isobuster screenshots.
32 bit :
and this 64 bit:
you can see difference inside the iso image. in x64 something missing. in older version of Rufus , gave error while creating bootable usb key in x64 saying " this version of rufus supports only bootmgr/winPE .. so i think x32 has bootmgr but x64 doesnt.
can anyone help me please?
