    Hi,
    Currently I am using Windows XP. I am planning to change to Windows 7 for that How can I find out my processor support 64 bit?
    I checked the following registry
    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment
    PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE = x86
    PROCESSOR_IDENTIFIER = x86 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10, GenuineIntel
    HKLM\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\DESCRIPTION\System\CentralProcessor\0
    Identifier = x86 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10

    In the MSINFO32.exe showing
    Processor = x86 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10 GenuineIntel ~3158 Mhz
    Please advice me from the above information can I install 64 bit version of OS in my system.

    Ans tell me the proper way, how to find out the processor is 32 bit or 64 bit?

    Regards,
    Bineesh
