I'm still not clear: I've never heard of an Itanium laptop. Is it Itanium 
(ia64), or amd64? The point I was trying to make is that amd64 is NOT limited 
to AMD. It is an extension to the x86 instruction set, created by AMD and in 
use by both AMD *and* Intel. IA64, or Itanium, is completely different. You 
most likely need amd64. If the amd64 iso boots up fine, then you have amd64 
and the rest of the system should work.
