Overwrite 64 bit Windows 2003 Server with 32 bit version?

Hello all,

I have a server that has Windows 2003 Server (64 bit) running on it and I would like to have it run 32 bit. The problem is I already have a lot of data and configurations on it that I don't want to mess up by having to reinstall. Can I just take a Windows 2003 server (32 bit) CD, boot off of it, and choose the repair function so that it will reinstall the version of Windows off the CD? If not, does anyone have any ideas how I can easily roll back to 32 bit? Thanks a million!

Hi markataylor76,

answered the same question this morning, 64 bit is a complete version of windows, its the same as if you were trying to rollback to 2000 from xp, it wont work, you have to reinstall the OS

Cheers!
