Windows 7: Can I run 64-bit...?

Can I run 64-bit...?

Hello everyone, just a quick question, im using an Intel Celeron CPU 550@2.0GHz on Vista 32-bit. I was pretty sure I could run 64-bit Seven so I got the RC and burnt it and went to boot on startup but it just hangs at about 75% when loading the files. So I was just wondering if I actually can because:

On performance information and tools under "64-bit capable" it says yes.

But

In device manager under "computer" it says ACPI x86-based PC.

So im confused whether I can run 64-bit or not?


Thanks in advance

Hi Exodus, download this small utility which will let you know if your processor supports 64bit or not.

Thanks for you fast reply, it turns out I can 64-bit. This now brings up another issue though.

What can I do about my 7 DVD not loading the files? I cant run it inside Vista either so the only way I can do it is by booting by DVD. Any ideas?
