    Thank you .

    >Are you asking about 32-bit or 64-bit Windows XP?

    Both :) ...... But realy i want 64 bit for the reason you said .

    When i got the computer i put win 10 on it and it went in with no problem . Then i tried to put win 7 on it and had to add loads of drivers to the image with NTlite to get it to go in .

    I was hopeing to get Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 on it because i thought that it might have less difficulty with drivers and it can deal with the RAM .

    Then i tried some XP family versions but didnt make any notes :) ....... some wouldnt boot ...... some said this operating system wont go on this computer ...... but one said something that made me think maybe it needs a changed setting in BIOS ....... or a different / older / moded BIOS .

    Before i try all those XP types again i wanted to get some advice .

    I thought that if i can find drivers for XP that XP must go in ...... then i found some drivers but they come from driver update sites that want to install registry cleaning programs so i'm not to confident that they might work or realy are for XP :)
