Will changing from 32-bit OS to 64-bit OS affect on some files (Am I going to be able to open all my files, without any errors)?

Any help will be appreciated!!!
Do you have two partitions for one OS? Meaning are you installing os on one and have saved data on the other? And you are concerned that you will lose the data in the second partition. As long as you do not format the wrong partition you will not.

No, it means you can run a 64 bit OS on your system . Drivers are more or less an
afterthought with the most important being your ethernet driver. If you can`t get to the net you can`t dload drivers. But you can still use your XP drive to do that but don`t fret too much, as mentioned, W7 does a great job.

Windows 7

Only thing currently on the market that can handle a XP 32bit to Win7 64bit is Zinstall XP7.
It restores the XP stuff, apps included, after you install Win7 - so it works even if you discover the "all my apps are lost" part after the upgrade. :)
