    one of my friends has three iso files ...ia64,x64 and x86 versions of Enterprise edition of Sql Server 2005...
    now which of these three can be installed on Win XP Pro ? :confused:

    ia64 is probably for Itanium processors and x64 for XP 64 Bit... so is it the x86 version :confused:

    It should be x86 if you have a 32-bit system. BTW, google could always have helped you there.
    BTW, I don't use MS-SQL. Why would I when I have a better alternative in MySQL and I don't need to either pay for it or pirate it. And it gives better performance.

    Cos you were searching google for wrong query. I mean you should have googled for x86, x64 and ia64. That would have explained you what these three terms mean.
