Your M6-1214TX doesn't have an IDE interface. It uses SATA to connect the internal disk, just like most other computers made in the past 7–10 years, and SATA always uses DMA; you couldn't even turn it off. Not sure about where it shows up in Device Manager, though. It's possible that Win8 lists SATA controllers under "Storage controllers" next to other ...

Your issue is not the CPU; it is the UEFI firmware. UEFI boot in Windows requires the firmware address size to match the OS kernel. The vast majority of systems come with a 64-bit firmware implementation, and most people install 64-bit Windows on top of that. These extremely slim tablets are a recent exception. The usual alternative is to boot/install ...

The 64bit Operating Systems referred to support more than 8GB physical memory. The point being made is that only 8GB can be installed on the motherboard. 32bit Windows client systems only support 4GB (apart from some so-called Starter editions which support less for marketing reasons). 64bit Windows clients have supported various physical memory sizes since ...

Why would you even think DMA is not enabled? To see how your disk drive is connected, use the “By connection” view and search for it there. If I were to venture a guess, I’d say it’s a Memory Technology Device, a type of embedded flash memory.

You have it backwards. It's confusing, but with 64-bit Windows, \system32 has 64-bit programs, while \SysWOW64 has the 32-bit ones. Easy way to see this for yourself: both directories have a CMD.EXE, the "Windows Command Processor", aka "Command Prompt" or "DOS shell". Run either one and check the Task Manager (on the Processes tab if you are showing More ...

Since you have several questions I'm going to quote each as I go along... I want to know if win 8.1 will TRUELY use this 4 Gb to run x64 addresses apart from being just be able to access this increased memory? All 64-bit Windows can "run x64 addresses" regardless of RAM size - even if you have much less than 4 GB of memory (assuming, of course, that ...

This is a bug with the Windows-provided USB audio drivers. In other words, its a Microsoft screwup. They've never chosen to fix it, for some bizarre reason. Any USB audio device in Win Vista or later will have this same effect, unless the vendor has provided their own custom driver. The default Windows driver has a mathematical error in it which MS has ...

Just a note don't use the search box in the start menu to look for odbcad32.exe (the same as if you type odbc only). Even the name is the same it opens the one in C:\Windows\System32 not c:\Windows\SysWOW64\ Or if you want to open it from here just type the whole path in the search box to get the correct one c:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe I know it ...

I just ran into this problem as well, though I'm using Excel 2013. Here's what I did to solve the problem: Go to File > Options > Add-Ins > Manage Add-Ins Go Button (at the bottom) Uncheck Solver add in (in other words, remove it) Completely close all Excel spreadsheets and programs Open Excel Follow step one again Add solver back to Excel For some ...

I have read that in order to boot Linux with the 32-bit UEFI, you can swap out the standard 64-bit UEFI GRUB with the 32-bit one from a different distribution and it'll be able to work on the Stream 7, so maybe a similar procedure (swapping the 64-bit UEFI bootmgr with the 32-bit one and reconfiguring the entries to match your installation) might work to get ...

I was having the same issue and it was being caused by HTTPS Everywhere which forces an HTTPS connection.

The thing with the large number is, it's 2^64 (2 to the 64th power). That's the amount of unique states that a x64 register could be in, as there are 64 bits in the register to be set to either on or off thus there are 2^64 unique combinations of bits set to on and off. Assuming that a register value points to a byte address in memory, it can thus ...

You are gonna have to hack this a little bit but standard Linux tools are your answer. Install a boot loader called grub ( use the 32 bit version ) to do your initial bootstrap on the usb and then get that to launch the 64 bit installer and install 64 bit windows to the tablet. Now uefi will crack it over the OS that is installed on the tablet so you will ...

Yes depending on the program you are running, you could need the 64bit one or the 32bit one, putting both on is not going to harm anything at all and would be a good way to get it installed. A single program instance is only going to use one or the other. If your installing it for one program needing it, then you would prefer to install the one that either ...
