    Just started my study for NCS Expert and would like to share that since NCSE is 16bit, it will never run on 64bit machine. You'll need 32bit windows. Off to installing VMware again..

    Hi sifus, I just got my INPA/EDIABAS 6.4.3 and 4.4.7 installed on my netbook with Win7 Starter Edition. Just wondering do I need to update to INPA/EDIABAS 6.4.7 and 5.0.2 in order to install EasyDIS/GT1?

    Already did but remained on INPA/EDIABAS 6.4.3 and 4.4.7 as during the first try of updating to 6.4.7 and 5.0.2 I sort of screwed up the installation. Re-installed everything and in the midst of getting GT1 installed now. Just created the Virtual Machine.

    Successfully got INPA 6.4.3/EDIABAS 4.4.7 and EasyDIS/GT1 installed on my humble Intel Atom netbook last night.

    Thanks to helpful posts from aidilj, jarence and m3 from this thread.

    Installation of the EasyDIS/GT1 is pretty straight forward I would say and not as complicated as many have claimed, provided you have some basic IT and computer knowledge. But, installation of INPA-EDIABAS are much much simpler though, quite a breeze.

    Just to share, my installation guides are just the PDFs that came with the downloads from bimmerforums 4shared site.

    Was referring to another guide (for Win7 x64) initially which taught how to upgrade to INPA 6.4.7/EDIABAS 5.0.2 as well but I somehow screwed up the process hence decided to delete the whole thing and start all over and chose not to upgrade and stick to 6.4.3/4.4.7 and install EasyDIS/GT1 straight from there.

    Not sure what is the difference between INPA 6.4.3/EDIABAS 4.4.7 vs INPA 6.4.7/EDIABAS 5.0.2 though.

    The only issue I encounter is the somewhat laggy interface during installation of EasyDIS/GT1. RAM was at 512MB in VMware Workstation v9 (netbook only have 1GB RAM in total). Gonna try look into that tonight. Hopefully it would be smoother once I allocate more RAM to it.

    Tested INPA-EDIABAS and confirmed that it's working prior to installation of EasyDIS/GT1. The startup and launch is quick, albeit some of the codes are hard to decipher (since many compared INPA/EDIABAS to a engineer's tool while GT1 is for a technician).

    Anyway, yet to have the chance to try EasyDIS/GT1 out on my ride yet as I left it overnight to install.

    Shall update more once I'm back home tonight. :)

    P/S: If this goes successful, might try to order the BMW scanner 1.4.0 as well and test it out. :D

    The DIS will be faster with more ram allocated.

    Are you able to get easyDIS up and connected to the car yet?

    Troubleshoot whole night and manage to clear fault code 200.159 but end up with this below. Pretty frustrating. :/

    INPA is working flawlessly though.

    The thing is all APItest runs fine. One thing I was wondering is that should I set vm to off and protocol to Fister? And another thing is my OBD test shown "Read value 'Tag' failed". Hmmm
