sorry if this is the wrong place to post. feel free to move it if it is.

 

I got a computer from work that they were getting rid of because it needs a new hard drive. I ordered a 500GB on its way. the computer is an HP Pavilion Slimline s7520n PC. and there is a sticker on it that says "AMD64". does that mean a 64bit OS can be installed on it?

It has a 64 bit capable processor (AMD Turion), however according to the specifications here the maximum supported memory in this model is 1Gb of DDR1 SDRAM.  This is not enough to run 64 bit versions of Windows 7 or Windows 8 (minimum 2Gb, recommended 4Gb+).  You could probably run a 64 bit version of Linux.

Okay. I know it can run a 32 bit version of Windows 7 because they have 4 of these with 32 bit Windows 7

Yep, minimum memory requirements for 32-bit Windows 7 is 1Gb.  From personal experience (an old Netbook running Win 7 Starter Edition with 1Gb) it doesn't make for a nice system to use though..
