win xp 64

Recommended Posts

All I can say is that I run XP 64, I set up my system according to Nick's guide and it works well. Note that there are some things in the guide that (from memory) are specific to different operating systems and 32/64 bit and certain hardware. So read it carefully !

I think you misread that section (or maybe I did !). I don't believe that change is required for 64 bit operating systems.I'm sure someone will correct me if I am wrong !

Stef,The above is for a 32bit OS ONLY and is not needed for XP X64.

You need to read through it. I seem to recall there was stuff that applied only to Vista etc. But Nick spells it out very clearly. If you decide to follow his guide you do need to follow his instructions in order and to the letter. And as he is at pains to point out, the risk is yours !

I did a quick scan of Nick's document and couldn't find a value of 3072 being set anywhere ?

That sets the swap file size and yes, use it. I have one system with 4G and another with 6G and it's set the same. You will never need more than that.
Thank you! vgbaronStef
