    Hello MegaFixer.

    I'm not sure; is this what you're looking for?

    That article also says Windows 7 is not going going to offer an x86 version, which they clearly are. So that article is slightly outdated

    Ooops. Thanks for the link.

    Microsoft introduced Windows Server 2008 R2 at the 2008 Professional Developers Conference as the server variant of Windows 7. A reviewer guide published by the company describes several areas of improvement,[22] notably the inclusion of a number of new virtualization capabilities, reduced power consumption, a new set of management tools, new Active Directory capabilities such as a "recycle bin" for deleted AD objects, a new FTP server, DNSSEC support, and an increase in the number of supported processing cores from 64 to 256. 32-bit processors are no longer supported.
    However the system requirements table below shows:
    Processor: Minimum/Recommended
    • 1 GHz (x86) or 1.4 GHz (x64)

    • 2 GHz or faster

    Memory:
    • 512 MB RAM (may limit performance and some features) 2 GB RAM or higher

    • Maximum (32-bit systems): 4GB RAM (Standard) or 64GB RAM (Enterprise and Datacenter)
    wth, o_O

    Although you can install a 32-bit operating system on a computer that has a 64-bit CPU, you cannot install a 64-bit operating system on a computer that has a 32-bit CPU.
    so, does it mean that M$ markets its regular Win32 Server version as Win64?
