Upgrade 32-bit XP to 64-bit XP

Did you take advantage of this offer? The offer is expiring soon (July 31st). I was reminded of this program as I found my Windows XP Professional x64 Edition today in the mail. 

The Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Technology Advancement Program enables customers who have purchased Windows XP Professional (32-bit) to exchange it for Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. You will need to have an x64 processor (the AMD Athlon 64, AMD Opteron, Intel Pentium 4 with EM64T, or Intel Xeon with EM64T) to run the new software.

Since many of our partners are taking part in this program, you should check your PC manufacturer's Web site to see if they support the exchange on your x64 computer. Customers who are currently supported by a system builder or OEM and choose to exchange Windows XP Professional (32-bit) for Windows XP Professional x64 Edition via any means other than their PC manufacturer may void support with their PC manufacturer. If they support the program, your PC manufacturer will be able to provide you with a CD that includes all of the right drivers and software specific to your computer. If you built your PC yourself or have purchased it through a system builder, you can make the exchange through the link to the right.

Why should you move? Check out the top 5 reasons and read our FAQ or if you have questions about the program in general, check out the Technology Advancement Program FAQ.
