Right now I have a 64 Bit CPU (T4400) running a 64 Bit version of Windows 7. What I would like to do is to dual boot with a 32 Bit version of Windows XP.
From what I understand, it is possible, but I do have few questions:
-When installing drivers for my computer hardware, will I need to install 64 Bit drivers or 32 Bit? I'm not even sure if my Dell resource disks come with 32 Bit drivers.
-Will I see a decrease in performance when running a 32 Bit OS on a 64 Bit CPU?
-Can someone please explain what the advantage of using a 64 Bit OS, CPU, Etc, over using 32 Bits?
