Windows 7: Help On Dual Boot

Please tell us the model card so we can look for the driver.

If you have 4gb or less RAM you may like the way 32 bit runs better anyway, so you'd be right to Dual Boot long enough to decide. Then we can help you remove the one you don't want.

Everything you need is in Dual Boot Installation - Windows 8 and Windows 7 or Vista - Windows 8 Forums
and Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Greg I have already mentioned two cards in posts # 7 & 10 and this is the site for the driver for one of them. The card/s I have referenced run on both 32 and 64bit systems so the OP could install both though I think it is going to cause problems.

Let's see if we can find a driver for the card he has first.

If he has 4gb or less of RAM he may want to run 32 bit anyway.

So there are several options before buying a new card.

Yep thats a point Greg well I think I have done enough now and as those cards both support 32 and 64bit I don't know what else to suggest.

They could be used on either OS version the OP sets up regardless and if that OS is a 32bit system?? then it will not need the 64bit OS as well I mean to me it isn't rocket science unless some TV can only be got via a 32bit OS or via a 64bit OS thats the only reason I can think of why the two OS's would be needed

Understanding dual boot

Helo All,

Here's my first post. I have a Dell D830 with XP Pro 32bit and I would like to go all Win7 but I have some programs currently installed for which I have no re-installation disk. Therefore I figured that I would partition the HDD and install Win7 Pro 64bit on a new partition.

I've never worked with a dual boot and have some questions.

  1. How do the two OS's share software and drivers or don't they?
  2. If not, do I load a second set of drivers in Win7
  3. And do I/can I load programs on both OS's to avoid switching back and forth?
  4. Do I/should I do the same for documents?
  5. Should there be a third partition for documents?
Yep, that's a lot of questions.
