Greetings! Well i've been looking forward to getting a 64 bit processor but I still haven't gotten around to do so. But thats beside the point. But it seems that I have a question that no one really knows the answer too. Now I have a 32-bit CPU and I was wondering if I can upgrade from the 32-bit Windows to the new 64-bit Windows? Keeping in mind that I am running a 32-bit Processor. Well any help or thoughts on this topic would greatly be appreciated.

Sorry,

You will need a 64bit processor to run the 64bit version of Windows, and driver
upgrades will be necessary also for all your peripherals when you change over.

See a related thread at "Neowin.net" here >

I'm still waiting a bit yet to upgrade.
