Converting 32-Bit to 64-Bit Windows?
Posted on 2010-09-21
I purchased an HP laptop that came with Windows 7 with a downgrade to XP Pro. Both 32-bit versions.
However, I am now being asked to put Windows 7 64-Bit on it (I have the media & key).
My question is, are there hardware limitations from changing from a 32-Bit environment to a 64-bit environment? Here are the specs on the PC:
Intel Core i7-620M 2.66GHz,
4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM,
320GB 7200rpm SATA,
15.6" LED-backlit DIsplay,
NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M,
Windows XP Pro downgraded from Windows 7 Pro
Can it be done with a simple reformat???
