Microsoft has no supported method to change Vista 32 bit to any 64 bit Windows.
And it's been over 10 years since XP 64 bit rolled out and I have yet to see anyone hack their way through such an upgrade.
Why isn't the supported fresh install an option?
As there are a lot of knowledgeable folk on here
I am a little confused.
I have a HP desktop that presently has 4Gb RAM, 2x2Gb installed.
I wish to make available the full four slots, i.e. 8Gb to maximise video editing etc.
If I do an upgrade of the XP Professional to Vista Ultimate 32 bit, can I in fact then go out and buy more RAM to make the comp faster?
I have spare slots but obviously XP 32 bit can only recognise almost 4Gb.
What is the best scenario and solution here?
I have the OEM system builder pack here, this is why Vista upgrade, both for software and my hardware drivers etc. I will not have to do a clean install I presume? This is what the Internet tells me.
many thanks and please can you either help me out or just point me in the right direction.
