Trying to see if this is possible. I have a Dell Vostro I bought a while back that came with Windows 7 32 bit. I removed Windows 7 and put Ubuntu on the Vostro. I recently orded all the hardware for a new gaming PC. I would like to take that Dell Disc and install Windows 7 64 bit on the new PC. Based on:
I get the impression by doing a custom install it will automatically detect 64-bit capabilities? I understand drivers will not be correct and it is an OEM license. I know how to correct the drivers but I just want to save money since I have a Windows 7 license I am not using. Is it possible to take that Disc that installed the 32bit Windows 7 on my Dell and use it to install a 64bit Windows 7 on a non-Dell?
I should clarify that I don't have that hardware yet and I have not been able to test. I would like to know if it is possible or not so I can buy the correct version if needed pre-arrival of hardware.
