nbrt 64 bit support

The future is 64 bit computing. I think the boot recovery tool should support updating from a 64 bit as as well

Re: nbrt 64 bit support

I agree but one thing to understand is that right now the NBRT uses the 32 bit version of WINPE. If Symantec updates it to the 64 bit version of WINPE, then anyone with 32 bit version would have the same problem in reverse. Or they could create versions for both 32 and 64 bit WINPE.

Also this does not gurantee that you won't have to manually add network drivers to the NBRT. The default network drivers may or may not work on your computer.

Re: nbrt 64 bit support

One of the biggest issue is the retail cd nbrt. Most users expect that it would work out of the box. Plus, you better train your employees. One of the tech guy on Symantec phone support says the virus defs were updated but the date did not change.
