I upgraded from XP and "inadvertently" used the 32bit win7 version. Now, I believe it is better to have installed the 64-bit version. I still have a "D" drive partition on which the old XP was stored. Can I install the 64 bit version of win7 on to the D drive partition. And if so, will I be able to boot from the 64 version?
Hi, TheViper... Thanks for this lucid response. I had so much trauma backing up and reinstalling old computer and losing old data and computer going off and old data reappearing, etc. that I am about used up with the installation process. However, one day when I am recovered I will go ahead and try another clean install. \thanks again. lloyd
