I am going to install 64bit Windows 7 on my laptop that had 32bit Windows Vista on it. I checked and it seems like the processor
Intel Pentium T3400 is actually 64bit, so everything should be OK.
Is there any possibility that it will not work? Could the laptop be somehow locked to Windows Vista only, via hardware etc?
How about installing (older OS) Windows XP ? Could some of the laptop's hardware features stop from working?
What should I take into account when installing the OS? Does laptops need some special versions of the OS's to be installed? Or does "one size fit all" here?
