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.
