Dualboot with 32 and 64bit Vists - install and uninstall Help

Posted: 01-01-2009, 05:19 PM

Happy New year guys

I hav a 64bit supported HP laptop with all drivers.

Currently am using 32bit Vista Home Premium ( pre installed )

but i would like to try 64bit Vista on my lappy.

I want to make sure, that am i install same Vista OS using dualboot?
will they work fine?

and if I not satisfy with 64bit, how can i remove it without affecting
my 32bit Vista?
( means without bootloader, it wants to start my 32bit vista
automatically, just like current time )

thats all guys
thnsk in advance.

Hi,

You can install and run both versions, but you must have two separate
volumes on the laptop to install them into. Do not install them both to the
same one. Use disk manager to carve out space for the second installation.
You have to install x64 by booting from the disk, just make sure you choose
the new volume/free space created. If you don't like the results, the
removal process would be to boot to the 32-bit installation and delete the
64-bit volume, then re-expand the original volume to encompass the free
space.

Makes me wonder why you'd want to?
Do you have specific 64bit applications to run?
Do you have more than 4gb RAM

They are the only reasons for running 64bit Windows.
I have 64bit Vista Ultimate on one PC which has 8gig RAM which is why the
64bit O/S I also have a dual boot option on this PC with WinXP Pro 32bit -
can't say I notice any significant difference when using the same
applications in either O/S i.e. Adobe Photoshop I could not say there was an
improvement in performance between them, Pinnacle Studio 12 video editing
suite the same - rendering HD video still takes ages!!!
