You can install only one at a time.

If you have a 64 bit processor and more than 4gb of RAM then try 64 bit first. Drivers are a little bit harder to find with 64 bit, although most drivers will be in the installer or quickly updated via optional Windows Updates.

Don't activate it until you're sure you want to keep 64 bit and not change to 32 bit.

It's up to you. I would myself run 32 bit unless I was going to increase RAM. It's easier, too.

I would run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to see what it says about your hardware/software. Free Download PC Upgrade Advisor Windows 7 Hardware Programs Issues

Hello goose4, welcome to Seven Forums!



You have up to 120 days to decide which version to use before you activate the installation, have a look at this tutorial at the link below.

You can use the activation key to activate only 1 (32-bit or 64-bit) at a time.
