    Dual boot Windows x86 & Ubuntu X64

    Hello right now I'm using triple boot: 7, XP and Jaunty.
    Actually I'm using Windows only for playing purposes and ubuntu for everything else, I'm really happy with ubuntu.
    Due to a crash I've had on 7 and XP, I'm planning to reformat everything again(just waiting for the final release of Karmic).
    My question is if it's posible to do a dual boot Windows x86 and Ubuntu x64, because I have my legal copies of Windows but I want to use x64 so I will be using all my ram.
    I have 4G RAM installed in my computer but only gets recognized 3G's, therefore I'd like to try ubuntu x64.

    YES!! Innstall windows 32 bit and Ubuntu 64 bit. That's what I have now. There is no problem having 32 bit & 64 bit OSs on your machine as you can only run one at a time unless you run one in Virtual box.

    Either way it does not matter if you have a 64 bit CPU- you can run 32 bit & 64 bit.
    Multi-boot: Arch linux, Ubuntu 12.04, Windows 7 & Windows 8
