I'm currently awaiting the return of my motherboard since newegg sent me one that was DOA. That's an entirely different story that's been quite the headache. Anyways, I was just curious if I were to use a windows 7 64 bit upgrade disc on a system running windows xp pro 32 bit, would that be ok or would it cause problems? How can you tell which version you are running? If I look under system properties in the control panel it just lists Windows XP Professional which leads me to believe I'm currently running 32 bit. When I ran a 32 bit upgrade disc on my current rig, one of my hdd's died. I always assumed it wasn't related to the upgrade process considering it wasn't the hdd with windows on it that died.
I assume the 1090T cpu will run 64 bit, so I was just curious if I could do this. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. I read that you can install windows 7 64 bit on a 32 bit system, but that was assuming you're using a full fledged disc instead of an upgrade disc. Thank you in advance!
