Difference between Windows 7 x86 and x64, and which I should use.
I am not overly computer literate, but I certainly know enough to get me into trouble, thus my current predicament.
During this computer's short life span, I managed to lose the reinstall disks that were provided, and mess up Windows Installer to the point that I can no longer reinstall it. At all. So I figured why not wipe it clean and start fresh.
Since I figure I have my product code slapped on the side, I acquired another copy of Windows 7. However it seems to be x64, where as the version installed on my PC at this point is x84. Is this a significant difference? I have some people telling me to go ahead and run with it but they run pretty lose with their computer setups and know a whole lot more then I do, or at least let on that they do.
This computer has an AMD x4 965 Processor with 4gb of ram, it claims to be a 64 bit processor, so x64 seem legit. But if that were the case then why was x86 installed.
Either way, I hope someone can give me an affirmative enough answer to either go ahead with this or look for a proper version. Any help at all on this would be splendid folks. It's truly appreciated.
