You must be careful about your system there with the Fat 32. In some of the older machines there have been a few created that ran 32 bit system and then changed to 64 bit. Not sure which comps they are but if your rebuilding from old machines that might be whats going on. When you re install it will probably come back again because it needs the fat 32 to do what it requires for f64 bit. Not sure if I am right here but I know there are some out there. Good luck.

That's very interesting. Kind of reminds me of when I would install Windows 7, I had to first install the Vista that it came with, then W7 as an upgrade. but that was more a licensing issue. But it does sound like you could be on the right track.

If he does reinstall, I would first make the Boot Repair Disc I mentioned earlier. May or not work but worth a try. May be best to just leave well enough alone, however. Keep using Lite until it drops!
