That's kind of strange...Originally posted by Snugglebear
That's odd, one of the companies I did some work for in years past bought a few Itanium servers over the summer and the spec sheet from HP specifically said XP-64 beta. The machine they received also had the XP beta on it.
Let me try and clear this up...Originally posted by Ranma_Sao
There are two versions of IA-64.
Itanium can run Windows XP 64 Bit.
The newer Itaniums (Merced?) can't run the XP version, and need the version based on Server 2003 SP1. (Which is in Beta)
Windows XP 64-bit Edition delayed again?

The Inquirer is talking about the delays in the release of Windows XP for AMD x86-64 processors this morning. When will it be available? Well, at least not before the beginning of Q2, 2004 by the looks of it.
Windows XP 64-Bit Edition Beta 1, Build 1069 was provided by Microsoft at around the time of the launch of the AMD Athlon 64 and 64 FX back in September - the question on everyones lips seems to be why has there been a delay of some seven months, for even a Release Candidate, of the desktop version
Our information is that a significant amount of Microsoft development resources has been switched to focusing on rolling out Windows XP Service Pack 2, and this seems to be shaping up to be one of the most significant Service Packs that Microsoft has released.
Is it just me, or do you think Intel is probably pretty pleased with these delays? Check it out.
