64-bit to 32-bit.

Can I change my laptop's windows 7, from 64-bit to 32-bit? Will I have to completely restore my laptop to do it? I did not get any disks with my laptop, but have yet to make the restore disks. I am hoping with making the restore disks, I can change this system from the 64-bit to 32-bit. I bought a SuperDVR surveillance system, but it won't run on the 64-bit system. I am frustrated and need HELP.

Thank so much in advance!

  1. No, the restore partition is what's installed, there is no option to choose a 32 bit OS.
    You would need to purchase a 32 bit version.
    Contact the maker of your laptop and ask if a 32 bit version of the recovery disks is available as you will also need 32 bit drivers.

    Thank you for taking the time to post your answer to my question. I will call HP and see what they say about getting a set of disks from them.

  3. have you tried running the software in other modes, or upgrade to a higher version on win7 so that you can use a virtual machine as a 32bit installation.
  4. No, but anything is worth a try. Thanks 13thmonkey!
