Having (AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000 3.2Ghz) I believe I can go to 32bit and 64bit correct?
Yes, that processor will support the 64-bit operating system.
At the moment I'm running on a 32Bit Vista Home Premium, so will that cause issues in the BIO's when I want to use the 64bit side of Win7? (I
believe you can alternate between 32bit and 64bit in Win7 Home Premium)
The BIOS is compoletely separate from this, it won't effect it. The following is a quatation from Microsoft Community. The operating systems are both Windows 7, but the principal is the same. You will need to look into the tutorial for creating two partitions for the two operating systems.
"Yes you can. Just make sure you have appropriate partitions for both operating systems installed. You can install either before or after, doesn't matter. Windows 7 64 bit setup cannot be started from within Windows 7 32 bit, so if you install that first, you will need to boot from your Windows 7 64 bit disk, click Custom
Install during the install options and select the prepared hard disk or partition and Windows 7 will take care of the rest. Once installation is complete, you will have the option when your computer to select either version to boot into. Please note, you can only have 1 activated license, if you need to use both, you will need
have both licensed separately, cannot use the same key. However, you can evaluate both for 30 days until decide which one is appropriate for your needs."
What drivers should I have downloaded and ready?
You will need the disc which came with the motherboard to install the drivers you will need.
Should I choose (Recommended Update, or only Important?)
Windows 7 has one service pack, I would install that one first as it will take care of a lot of the updates, and then install the important updates, this holds true for Windows 8 as well.
When in the process should I add my 2 pairs of 2GB RAM cards? (I plan to remove the 2x512MB RAM cards)
I would leave the hardware as it is until after the installation of the operating systems, this way if there is an issue after installing the RAM it won't be be associated with the software installation.
Anything BIO's related I should be sure of?
The only time you should flash the BIOS is if you have a hardware change which will require an update in order to facilitate the hardware.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
