the windows 7 32bit version is working fine on my laptop and the programs that weren't working on the 64bit are now working on the 32bit version.
I have, however, set the info as you requested, the details about my laptop are in my profile. To note that it says that the os is 32bit but my laptop originally supports 64bit
If you think there are drivers available for my laptop so that I can use winXP 32bit then please let me know because this version of win7 32bit that I have installed doesn't use all the ram so is sort of pointless.
Eventhough I was looking to use win 7 64bit as host and have winxp 32bit on a virtual machine as a guest; knowing that this isn't possible, i would be happy if i can have a dual boot of win7 and xp
