I have an athlon 64 processor machine in which I have just upgraded from Vista to windows7, My question is can slip the 64bit windows 7 disk to upgade to 64bit ? and is there a big difference? Many Thanks HH
Got Windows 7 64 bit installed on my 2nd HDD and didn't have any problems with getting it activated by MS. I wasn't sure if they would allow me to run both 32 bit and 64 bit on the same machine, but I guess its alright. Windows 7 64 bit had all the drivers I needed and its up and running smoothly. The Plop bootloader works great for giving me the option of booting up either OS.
"I wasn't sure if they would allow me to run both 32 bit and 64 bit on the same machine, but I guess its alright."
I think the key here is that both types are running on the same hardware (motherboard in particular), & only one version is being run at any given time - technically that meets the licensing conditions.
Another member, jamesd1981, confirmed the same with Vista 32 & 64-bit versions in this thread click here. G
