Windows 7: Is windows HP referred as 32 bit and 64 bit?

Is windows HP referred as 32 bit and 64 bit?

Dear all!

I am using Windows 7 which is 32 bit. I am now intending to use Windows HP 2003. Does Windows HP 2003 relate to 32 bit as Windows 7?

If it doesn't relate to 32 bit or 64 bit, I think Windows HP is more compatible than Windows 7 in installing most programs? Is it right?

Sorry for being unaware of clarity.

Thanks a lot and I am looking forward to hearing from all as soon as possible.

My Best Regards,


LUCK

I'm sorry, but I don't understand your question. I assume you are referring to windows 7 Home Premium. It can be either 32 bit (x86) or 64 bit (x64) There are both versions. The versions are usually determined by your hardware. I don't know what you mean when you talk about windows HP 2003. Windows 7 did not exist in 2003. In 2003 there was windows XP and maybe Vista. And to answer your question as best I can; Windows 7 is the most compatable OS there is. If you are talking about very old software XP might work better, but windows 7 has a compatibility mode that many (not all) XP programs will run. If this does not answer your question then write back and be a little more specific and I or someone else will try to assist. But, Microsoft invested millions of dollars to secure drivers for most hardware and software. When new drivers come out if windows is set up to do it, the new drivers will be installed by windows updates. If you are having a specific problem please let us know.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
 
 

Windows 7 Home Premium is probably the most commonly used.
It will have everything the large majority of users need.

As whether to invest in a more expensive version, such as Ultimate, look at the official sites comparisson to see if those are features which you will need.
most do not, however only you can answer that question.


AS far as 32bit or 64bit ..
If you have 4GB of RAM or more, I would just go with 64bit.

If you have less than 4GB of RAm, with no intentions of adding more with the current hardware, Id stick with 32bit.


64bit Windows 7 is not like past 64bit versions. Its getting a lot more support, and has drivers available for the large majority of Hardware.

But, it would be wise to double check the manufacturers websites to ensure there are 64bit drivers/software available for your current hardware.
(And software you commonly use for that matter)
For example, a fairly old printer may have some issues.

Dear Essenbe!

What I mean is I am now using Laptop Dell Inspiron N5010 Windows 7 (32-bit) Ram 4G Hard Drive 650GB and Core-i5. I saw the notice label on the Laptop saying that it's running well with windows 7.

I would like to install Windows HP instead because I am very sure some old programs are supported with Windows HP but not Windows 7, so I would like to know it's running well if I change Windows 7 to Windows HP 2003 as I like. Hope this is enough for you.

If not, please let me know and I will always give you more information if needed.

Thanks a lot.

Hi, LUCK. As p5bdkw said, it sounds as if you mean Windows XP, not Windows HP. Windows XP is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit editions. I, however, do not think that installing Windows XP would be the best option for you. You can install something called Windows XP Mode on Windows 7 for free. This will allow you to install old programs into a 32-bit Windows XP environment and run them side-by-side with your Windows 7 programs.

Hope this helps. -BriceH

Dear BriceH!

What you explained must be what I need. Here is your explanation: "

This will allow you to install old programs into a 32-bit Windows XP environment and run them side-by-side with your Windows 7 programs." Sorry How can I set Windows XP Mode on windows 7 for free. How can I download the Windows XP Mode? Please help to give me the website to download it. I am very anxious to get the Windows XP Mode on Windows 7. I am looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.

Please help... help...

My Warmest Regards,
