Here is a question found on a social.technet.microsoft.com forum:

<<

I recently took delivery of my new Dell, which came with the 32bit
version of Windows 7, however the PC is capable of running at 64bit.

If I install Windows 7 32bit twice would that make it 64bit?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


So obvious!

Install AND install is clearly a boolean AND operation so 32 AND 32 = 32 :-)

however if he were run the 2 installs simultaneously it would 32 + 32 :-)

That's a joke, right? <g>

You need to install a new Windows 7-64 OS. And then Install SP1.

If Kenny Delmar were reading it, then, yes, "That's a joke, son! A funny! You're built too low -- the fast ones are gettin' right by ya!" :-)

Did you respond with Yes? The computer will be 64bit no matter what OS is installed. So technically the answer is Yes.

Twice? No, you need to install two copies!

4 copies of MS DOS are cheaper and still 64 bit ;-)
Btw. that can still be bought from MS until 2016... ;-)
