My Windows XP installation has become unusable for some unknown reason. Since Microsoft is going to end support in a few days anyway, I decided to install Linux Mint.
For optimal hardware utilization, I want to use a 64-bit system if possible. However, since XP isn't working it's not possible to determine whether or not I can use a 64-bit OS in the usual ways.
Therefore, I want to use the BIOS to find it out.
What information in the BIOS should I use to determine whether or not my I can install a 64-bit operating system?
