Hard drive from a 64-bit OS PC readable on a 32-bit PC

Hello, I have a PC with a smoked motherboard and salvaged the hard drive beffore pitching the PC in the dumpster. The data on the HD was written by a windows 7 64-bit OS. If I install that hard drive in a PC with a 32-bit Windows 7 OS, will it read the data?

  1. Best answer
    Yes. Hard drive formatting and partitions have no differences between 32 or 64 bit versions of Windows.
  2. Thanks, as you can tell, I know just enough about PC's to get me in trouble. I'm thinking of buying an off-lease HP DC5800 w/Intel core 2 Duo 2,33 Ghz Processor and Win 7, and installing the HD into it. It's $159 and warrantied for 1 year. Is this doable for a relative novice such as me?
