So I own two versions of Windows 7, one is 32 bit, the other is 64.
The 64 bit version came with my new desktop, and the 32 bit version came with my Laptop.
I was doing a clean install of my laptop, and the install went smooth, Windows is up and running!
However, after installing it I realized that I accidentally used the 64 bit installation disk instead of the 32 bit version. I confirmed this in the System Information screen, it says:
System type: 64-bit Operating System
As far as I knew this laptop was only a 32 bit machine. My understanding is that a 64 bit OS would NOT run on 32 bit architecture. Am I correct with this assumption?
If this was a 32 bit laptop is there any way a 64 bit OS would even run at all on it?
