Hello,

 

Have you tired running Intel's Processor Identification Utility?  If so, was it able to determine if you had a 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) CPU in your ThinkPad X60 Model 1709-CTO?

 

Regards,

X60 systems have Core Duo processors, not Core 2 Duo, and are not able to run x64 operating systems.

Hi,

 

I have an X60 with a T7200, which is a 2GHz Core 2 Duo.  I advise you check your processor rather than rely on the suggestion above that its not capable of running 64-bit.
