Question Installing 64-bit Linux on Intel Core 2 Duo

I've not been able to boot any 64-bit Linux distros on my Intel Core 2 Duo box. I have installed 64-bit Vista, 64-bit Windows 2003 EE, and 64-bit Windows XP. But I get a system crash when I try to boot 64-bit Ubuntu 7.04 or 64-bit SLES10. Has anyone been able to install a 64-bit distro on a Core 2 Duo system?

-How do I do it?

Installed on a couple of them with no issues. Used Fedora and the other Ubuntu. using goggle shows many results with success with 64bit distro on Intel chipsets.

Welcome to LQ, netdiggity. I agree with Brian1. I am running the 64-bit version of Fedora 8 on a box with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and have noticed no issues. (Well, the wireless support with WPA encryption sucks, but that is a separate issue. )
