I've got Windows 7 Home upgrade and it came with both 32bit and 64bit upgrade/install disks.
Can I install both as a dual boot and for this to be legal on one license, given that I'm only using one at a time?
The reason why I want this is that I have an old Yamaha SW1000XG sound card that has drivers that work fine on 32bit Windows 7 but none for 64bit. I want to run some heavy weight Adobe programs that recommend/require 64bit. So I dual boot into the OS depending on what I want to do on a day.
I believe the answer to my question is no, I can't -- and this answer comes from a fairly authoritative source: A Microsoft Most Valued Professional / Representative: http://social.answers.Microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7install/thread/e5099d54-3d67-48c3-a77e-8a3ca1b2c994
"Please note, you can only have 1 activated license, if you need to use both, you will need have both licensed separately, cannot use the same key. "
But, given that I've had earlier experiences of mixed advice from major companies, I wonder if anyone can confirm this with me by providing other credible sources too.
Alternatively are the terms clear enough on the EULA for me to work this out for myself?
