    I've done 64-bit batch files as well.  Just Edit -> Replace in Notepad anything referencing x86 with AMD64.

    You'll also have to modify 4-Drivers.bat as well with the correct paths to the 64-bit drivers you want to inject.

      Hi killerb255  ;D

      Thanks so much for your reply.....sorry to ask a stupid question...here goes..

      I have an Intel processor and installed windows 7 64bit ...I noticed that there was a folder for ia64 ...why do I use the amd one instead of this one?

      Sorry, that has been bugging me and I thought it would be nice to get som clarification on that ....might help others as well.

      Thanks a bunch!

        IA-64 = Itanium processor.  Those are used in super-high end servers.

        AMD64/x86-64/EM64T/Intel64 = means the same thing for the most part: 64-bit instructions on an x86 processor.  Since AMD came up with it first, AMD64 is the common name used by Microsoft.

          Go ahead and delete any posts that aren't relevant to the FAQ, then.

          I amended the relevant posts to accommodate 64-bit PE, so the extra discussion can be deleted...

            There is no GUI.  If you get a gray-ish wallpaper with a black command prompt, then you got what you're supposed to get.

            Hi, I'm new to this forum~
            I am using a Windows 7. After a forced shutdown few days ago, I found that the computer won't boot. (before the selecting user page, it freezes at a black screen) (You can read Microsoft article kb974719 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/974719) to find out more about my problem.)

            The solution to my problem is starting the system using PE disk, and I found your post very helpful in creating a PE disk. (I used a XP computer to create the disk.)
            After creating a PE disk following your steps, I tried to boot with the *censored*. However, it did not progress form the dos box, and the prompt said: "X:\windows\system32>wpe init"
            After reading several posts from various forums, my theory is that my problem appeared b/c I created my PE disk on a XP. (also, my XP computer couldn't create a ISO image for 64 bit PE disk. My Windows 7 has 64bit system, so that may have been the problem)

            Do you know why it does not progress at the dos box? Can you help me with this?
            Thanks...

            (I am a novice and I apologize if I have not been very clear with what I meant)

            Mikely, do not hijack another thread. This is an FAQ. Did you see where it said "Do not post questions here"? Anyway, for 64 bit Windows you need 64 bit PE and if you have a valid license you can download a 64 bit Windows Repair CD image from Microsoft. If you wish to discuss this more, start a new thread in the Windows 7 section of the forum.

            As the man said earlier, just replace "x86" with amd64  and voila!

            Just a quick heads up....the FAQ section is not for general posting....
