    Hi everyone. Name is Greg - I'm new here & this is my first post.

    I recently acquired a low-mileage CF-30 MK1. I'm in the process, or was, of installing Windows 10 Home, 64bit. However I get an error during the installation that the laptop does not have a 64-bit processor.

    I did read the sticky posted by toughasnails - great handle! Not asking for PW's & the BIOS is unlocked. My legitimate software

    Open to all thoughts! Thank you!

    19/30 Mk1 have Core Duo CPUs who don't support x64, so you're SOL.

    Also, don't run Windows on such a old system, go with Zorin OS instead.

    Really?!?! And here I thought I knew it all. I though Dore Duo meant dual core and 64-bit processing..

    I think the way it goes is a core duo is 32 bit and core 2 duo is 64 bit. FYI .,.W7 works very good on a 30 MK1. It does take a while to set up but I have done many and they do work great. When it comes to W10 I could not tell you. I have put W10 on a couple of my Toughbooks BUT every time Microsoft had a update it would break something and I would spend hours fixing it and it got to a point I was always having to do something with them laptops. Finely I put W7 back on them and never looked back. Also I don't like Microsoft's Telemetry and Tracking Service on W10.

    I've heard this as well. I've also heard that settings (power, quick boot, ect) will revert back to the preset option after some updates. I guess this explains the breaking things with every update :mad:

    Thank you all for saving me trouble!

    I have not, but will head there right now. I also have another CF-30, MK3, that actually has a dual-core processor! :D My SD card reader is not working.

    Thanks again for all the help!

    When I installed W10 on my CF-53 MK1 this was one of the things that I could not get to work. There was other issues but I never got around to them because of the SD card not working so after spending a month on it gave up. This was when W10 first came out so it's been a few years.
