Hi, on what computer can I use the amd64 version? As I know, Virtual PC cannot emulate x64 computers. In VMWare and with an Intel Core2Duo physical PC, it had the same error (unrecognized halt option 0xfff...), I tried with AMD Phenom X4, it was better, but crashed before it should write "Running C# Kernel.."
I built Distro/tiny.proj using /apic64 and /release (I tried without /release too). Thanks for your help.

Hi ngg, my apologies for the slow response. The machines that we tested AMD64 support on are shuttle boxes with the following specs:

Motherboard: Shuttle SN25P
Processor: AMD Athlon64 X2 3800+ (2.0GHz)
Chipset: NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 6200 TurboCache
Disk: Seagate ST3250823AS (250GB, 7200 RPM, 1.5 Gb/s)
DVD: Sony DVD DDU1615

If you're having trouble on your particular physical PCs, please complete a bug report on the Issue Tracker tab with complete machine specifications. We may not be able to fix all of these issues because we might not have access to the hardware you're using, but if we can your help in collecting data we might be able to diagnose some issues. I hope this helps.
