Beta ID: XXXXXX
We would like to extend an invitation for you to beta test a version of Windows XP Professional for x64 processors. This edition of Windows XP Professional is designed to run on AMD Athlon 64 and Opteron processors and Intel processors with EM64T. You will need to have access to the appropriate hardware to participate; we will not be able to provide it.
This program is being run in conjunction with the Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 beta. If you choose to participate you will have access to both SP1 and x64 Pro, though we're specifically requesting your feedback on the x64 Pro edition. During the Windows XPSP2 beta program you indicated that you had access to one or more computers utilizing these new 64 bit processors. Please note that you will be unable to run the x64 Edition unless you have the proper hardware. Your old 32 bit processors can't run the x64 Pro Edition.
