Enabling EMT64 on Atom N2600 chip
Posted on 2013-01-31
I bought an ASUS Eee PC X101CH laptop and want to stick a 64bit OS on it, the processor is an ATOM N2600 at 1.6GHz, and I would likely also upgrade the ram. I put a small SSD already, and just realized that the bios won't allow me to enable the N2600's EMT64 mode.
Here's the thing, there are lots of posts online about how the chip supports 64 bit, but some vendors have disabled it and there's no way to get them to allow you to do it. Intel can't do anything about it apparently.
I am wondering if there's a way for me to enable this feature somehow? Any guides or outlines on how to do it?
Any help would be much appreciated.
