Van,

If you are seriously into number crunching, a late model x64 box is no slouch in terms of this type of work, especially if you can multi-thread it. I am a bit rusty in this area as I don't use it much but with the FP primitives for fancy stuff and a couple of generation of SSE/AVX for simpler sequential stuff, you should not have any problems speed wise. A normal i7 quad has 8 threads, this Haswell E/EP I am using has 12 threads and some of the later 10 core versions have 20 so you should be able to get enough hoot out of it if you need it.

Hutch, Jokaste,
thank you, but that was not my problem. The sqlite problem I ""resolved"" 1 minute later .
I was/am after some material (book, pdf, site)  which explains what really is happening there. (like I said ...which could "enlighten" me.
A message "0 warnings 0 errors" and no result is hard to digest, because certainly something is very wrong.

No chance to boot  a w7 x64 from usb in uefi mode?

There was a trick that at some point you need to pull out and insert again your usb drive, but I dont remember at what stage of the installation exactly  :icon_redface:

Not specifically shaders, but I was looking at using the GPU for number crunching.
I found an attempt at assembler programming of GPU's but it was actively discouraged by Nvidia and AMD, and they gave no support to it what-so-ever.
Preferring everyone to follow their C route... so the GPU assembler thing died.

A pity, and fark them, as I dumped their stuff (Nvidia/AMD/Xmos/..) and moved onto Intel FPGAs (stratix10)... toys that are so much better  :biggrin:

Hello Vortex

Yes i can use Legacy mode but win7 x64 support uefi and i try to use it

Hi ragdog,

the installation of windows must be done differently, in your case, there is a dropping of the usb connection, so everything freezes. You need to run LiveCD, make a hard drive formatted, copy all the installation files to the root of the disk, restart the system and install as usual without external sources, then just delete the extra files  :P

That Acer model does not look like an easy case :

No any way to switch to the legacy BIOS mode?

Hello

SOrry that i post here but i cannot found the correct place.

I have a laptop Acer es1-523 installed is windows 10
and try to install from boot usb windows 7 x64.

I have read i must disable "Secure-boot" and Uefi is enable

Now use i Rufus with option Gpt partition and fat32 to create a win7 usb disk from a Win7 X64

If i boot from this usb come the screen from setup "windows loading files" >> windows is starting"

And it freez.

I have google for a solution but not any good found has any an idea?

Greets,
