I put Windows XP Pro 64-bit on my GX620-098US. I've tried installing the SCM several times (using both the installer from online and on the drivers cd), and every time I get this message when I try to launch it:


Any ideas?

Umm... shouldn't it still work in 32-bit mode? Though since it's interacting with the hardware directly, I guess there could be problems...

But more importantly, this machine has 4gb of memory. Are you seriously telling me MSI didn't write drivers for 64-bit OSes when you need to use a 64-bit OS to fully utilize the machine??? Are there any alternatives to SCM?

Not quite, only a 64bit OS isn't enough, all your programs have to be 64bit else there is no use to use 64bit at all.
32bit programs will work just the same as under 32bit OS, BUT programs with drivers (like SCM) will fail if they are not 64bit.
Unless you have programs that are 64bit there is no use to run Windows 64bit.

Sorry I wasn't clear that there were drivers also involved for the hardware with the SCM software--thus, it is designed with 32bit drivers and won't work with a 64bit OS(You need 64bit drivers for a 64bit OS.).
