Can I install a 32bit WinXP on a 64bit hardware ?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Steven Prasil, Mar 2, 2007.

  1. Because some programs do not run on my WinXP 64bit installation I am thinking about to install
    a 32 bit WinXP on my 64 bit hardware.

    Is this possible in general?

    How much percent will be the performance loss approx?

    I would like to get an impression of how many people have done such an installation.

    All the new hardware motherboards and CPUs are 64bit but there a only a few
    usenet postings and sales numbers for 64 Bit WInXP.

    So I assume that a lot of users must run 32 bit WinXP on 64 bit hardware.

    As long as your 64-bit hardware is AMD 64 or Intel 64 (aka E64MT), and not
    Itanium, the 32-bit versions of the Windows OSs will work perfectly.
