Windows 7 32 or 64bits ?
Hey guys, I use a Mac here and i'm gonna install windows on parallels desktop ( a virtual machine basically). My mac has 4GB of RAM and has Intel 3000 HD. Wich one of them should i choose? Ultimate 32 or ultimate 64 bits?
You should only ever install 32 bit if you have an old 16 bit application you need to run or an old device that does not have 64 bit drivers. 64 bit offers more advantages than just the ability to use more than 4GB of memory, there are hardware portions that can be taken advantage of when running 64 bit applications that 32 bit applications cannot. Unless you have a specific reason you need a 32 bit OS you should install the 64 bit option, partially just to help kill off the 32 bit OSes out there to speed up progress. Your Mac OS X is a 64 bit OS already.
