View Full Version : Dual boot win7 32 bit & ubuntu 64 bit ?

February 12th, 2010, 11:18 PM
Hi, I just got a thinkpad t400 with win7 preinstalled (32 bit), and I just wondered whether it would work to install ubuntu 64 bit ?
Is it possible, buggy or just a stupid question ?

It depends on whether you have a 64bit processor. These days mostly all the processors are 64bit capable. But yes you can have a 32bit windows and a 64bit ubuntu with no problem.

Having a 32-bit OS on one partition and a 64-bit OS on another is perfectly safe, assuming your CPU supports 64-bit (which most do nowadays) :)
