Windows 7: 32 BIT & 64 BIT Conflict.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
32 BIT & 64 BIT Conflict.

Currently I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I'm planning to install Win 7 Ultimate x86. I tried to do it with a USB stick (through Windows 7 USB/DVD Tool). But it says the ISO image aint valid. Is it because its 32 and the installed one is a 64 bit?

First off, if they are the 2 windows CDs from the same box (ie share the same license) it cannot be done. But you can try to follow these suggestions to see if it helps your cause, and if you own 2 separate licenses: How to install Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit with dual boot - Microsoft Answers

May I suggest that if you have 4GB RAM or less, using ONLY the 32 bit (also called x86) one, and if you have more than 4GB RAM, using ONLY the 64 bit (also called x64) one.

There is 0 benefit from having them both installed, and you'll encounter more problems then it may be worth. Actually, you will encounter more problems, and it just isn't worth it.

Also, please only create one (1) thread per problem. You'll make the Admins angry

Wireless conflict?
Well, this issue is starting to annoy me. I noticed the other day that my problem, regarding my internet, was that when my sister goes on, my computer disconnects from the internet for like a minute and then reconnects. This happens quite often in a day, and it's really annoying. Any tips?
