    windows server 2003 beta problem

    I downloaded the 64 bit beta version from microsoft. I burned it with two different prog and it said that the setup.exe file was bad. Then I went and grabbed the standard version and it installed just fine. I like it, but anyone have any idea why I couldn't get the 64 bit to install? I even tried it on another machine.

    What said the setup.exe was bad?

    Did you try to install it by booting to the CD, or from within windows?

    Well I first tried to upgrade in windows, but upon reading it said that Server didn't support the upgrade. I then tried to boot off the cd, and it wouldn't boot either.

    Like I said, I got the standered edition to work but I was just wondering about the installer.

    You might have gotten a bad iso. Try getting it again. Also, are you running it on a 64bit machine or 32bit?

    If you dont have a 64bit processor, it will not be supported.

    Have a look at the article I posted in a previous thread.
