maybe "stupid" question Installing CB w/DVD

I just looked up installing #! with DVD found a ut oh in this fourm with a few people having problems with installing off a DVD. As when I put the ISO on a SD Card it shows 77x MB in size and I cannot find a CD over 700 MB to use. so now I got this other HP Elitebook (6930p) that has the same problems with installing CB off a SD CARD BUT it has a CD/DVD bruner/player so luckly when I took out my HDD from my acer D250 then stuck it in here then fired it up it worked. my XP had to have new drivers installed. but my 32 BIT CB runs with no problems on this one with just swaping out the HDD.

seeing that I now have a 64 bit Laptop I want to utlize the 64 bits w/ 4 GB Ram (pawn shop 70 bucks laptop I now have)-- I went out and got me the DVD's to use to burn CB to. now I am having reserves about it seeing that posting of problems with a few people.

the stupid question is if this does not work there is no way it would work to try and install the 64 bit CB on a 32 bit acer D250 then just swap that HDD again into this 64 Bit Laptop huh?

Probably why no one has answered this one yet is because you already half way said it yourself.

"64 bit CB on a 32 bit..." will not work.

Hi there userx-bw smile

Have you tried installing #! from a USB flash drive instead? If not, here is a great tutorial smile
