Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

The above will NOT work.

What you can do if this continues to intrigue you is shrink your 32 bit WIn7 to run a test install of 64 bit to see how it runs for your typical uses, or install to another HD with 32 bit Win7 HD unplugged.

Win7 32bit

I already run a double boot system so am used to that - and the usefulness of EasyBCD.

Is it possible to run win 64 and win 32 as a double boot on a temporary basis? it would be using win 7 in one and win 8 in the other. Why? I want to check which of my essential but rather odd utilities do not work under 64.

Thanks. I was not sure if they would have to be on separate drives with one or the other unplugged. I had not anticipated that a simple double boot system was all that would be needed to separate them.
