For similar reasons as why you can run an "Intel OS" (i386) on an AMD CPU. AMD64 (aka x86-64) refers to AMD's 64-bit extension to the x86 architecture. Most (all?) of Intel's recent x86 CPUs also implement this extension. > > On Mon, Mar 24, 2008 at 4:35 PM, Ivan Voras <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > > Irodatechnika Hajdu wrote: > > > Hi! > > > > > > I have got a XEON (E5320) based computer.
