Windows 7 Ultimate x64

As soon as I installed Ubuntu 32-bit, it worked fine.

You can go ahead and try it, you're not really going to lose anything, especially if it's just for everyday usage (Internet, Multimedia, etc). But, for example, if you try and run Firefox x64, there's no Flash support since there's no 64-bit Flash plugin and you have to run the x86 version. Just a heads up.
Correction....There is x64 flash for Linux. Just not for Windows.
