Windows 7: 32bit drivers for 64bit system work around

30 Jun 2012   #1

32bit drivers for 64bit system work around

I have installed vista 32 bit on a partitioned drive of my vaio laptop which cam with windows 7 64 bit.
I have numbed myself to some of the issues i have with seven, but i can not use it for my music (WMP12 stinks, library issues).

I have vista up and running, but when the intel graphics card makes my laptop screen go dark but the external monitor is perfect. I have downloaded drivers from sony but when i try to install them i get the error " this in not for the my system".

Is there a way to not have sony software screening the drivers for compatibility? I have tried different compatibility combinations and yield no positive results.

I have considered upgrading to windows 7 ultimate so i can run vista within the windows seven. is that possible?

Thank you,

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Why not solve the "issues" with Windows 7 and stick with that? When you say you can't use it for your music, what do you mean? I don't know of anyone who uses WMP to manage their music. There are tons of good free apps to do this, such as Media Monkey.

You can also virtualize Vista in any version of Windows 7 using VirtualBox or VMWare Player, but that seems like it could be overkill for what you need. Fill in your system specs so we know how it would run on your system.
