Can an Expert provide a guide to install a dual-boot Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit?
I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T510. It comes with Windows 7 32-bit. However, I’m working with VMWare and Virtual-PC and recently ran into a nightmare situation with a clients 64-bit VMWare image that wouldn't run on 32-bit Windows 7. Needless to say I lost days of productivity sorting it out.
So, I’ve decided to dual-boot Windows 7: I’ve purchased a bunch of 32-bit only software that I need, but I also require 64-bit Windows functionality.
Windows 7 32-bit from Lenovo contains no product key on the base or in the BIOS. It is basically a recovery disc that will reinstall Windows 7 32-bit.
I’ve got Windows 7 64-bit install DVD and another 4GB of RAM arrives tomorrow to max out the system.
Any advice will be much appreciated!
