Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

no reason why not.
You won't be benefitting from the x64 architecture but you can still install x32 operating systems on x64 hardware

Yes you can, having just looked at the spec it appears to be VT capable or rather the e5504 is VT capable so you could run 64bit and even run a VM host with 64bit clients, so I really would consider not installing a single 32bit OS

Could you post a link to the product page just to make sure I am looking at the right peice of kit? ;)
