Windows 8 Professional 64 downgrade to Windows 7
Posted on 2014-01-27
I hope this doesn't sound too stupid, but I cannot find a definitive answer.
I am replacing several of my clients XP desktops over the next couple of months.
The ones I have done so far where I have used third party PCs, have been Acers where I have gone from Windows 7 Pro to 8 Pro using the preinstalled software and then upgraded to 8.1 64-bit which was able to make good use of the 8GB DDR3.
However, if I had left it at Windows 7 Pro, would this have been 64 or 32 bit? I assume it would be 64-bit, but I've learned to take nothing for granted.
I am recommending Lenovos E73 i7s to one good client and don't want to look an idiot if I've told them to upgrade to 8GB and they can only access half of it,
Thanks for any help.
