Using a secondary drive with 64bit when primary is a 32bit
So earlier this year I constructed my first computer, which I sunk about 2k into and made fantastic . But, having no experience, I installed a 32 bit Windows 7 OS, thereby limiting my available RAM. Since I am a gamer, this is a bit of an issue. Now I have a new SSD, and I was wondering if I could simply load a 64 bit OS onto that drive and boot from there, thereby avoiding the reformatting of my current drive.
The primary drive is a 1TB regular hard drive, the secondary is a 64Gig Samsung 830 SSD.
