I read 32-bit versions of Windows do not have the capability of setting up a 64-bit install of Windows on a USB drive. If this is true, is there still a way to accomplish this with no optical drive in the new system? I'm trying to install Windows 7 64-bit on a fresh build, and the computer I'm working with right now is 32-bit Vista.

thats rubbish

all it means is you cant do an "upgrade install"

you can still burn the image to a dvd/ put on a usb stick in x86 (32 bit windows) then use it to install x64 windows

Alright, thanks. I thought it sounded a bit fishy, I just wasn't sure.
