I have two OEM disks, one each of" Win 7 Ultimate32 bit" and "Win 7 Professional 64 bit". I cannot use any of these as a boot disk because the installation stops just before "Windows Loading Temporary Files" text appears. I can start each of them by using WE and clicking on the setup file.
My computer has an AMD Athlon Dual Core 64 X2 processor and it has 4 MG RAM running WXP 32 bit with SP3. When I click on the setup file in the Windows 7 Pro 64 bit disk I am reminded that I the Windows 7 Pro 64 bit disk is not a valid Win 32 application. I suppose this might be because I am trying to install a 64bit disk on a system that is curerntly running a 32 bit OS. These two sets of installation files are on a internal HD. Not the system drive.
With these files available like they are, what is the best way to intall
1. First choice--------Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
2. Second choice---- Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
