You should try a few things before you concider downgrading the OS.I just ought a couple laptops loaded with the Windows 7 Home Premium 6-bit OS and now realized most of the old applications don't install/run at all. How do I downgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7, without paying for another OS?
I think you have it backward, It's the 32-Bit machines that can only support the 32-Bit OS. The 64-Bit machines can support both OS.Sadly, it turns out that the sony VAIO notebook model I have (VGN-NW175F) can only support the 64-bit version of the OS. I am told that some models can support both versions. Back to square 1 it seems.
I think what he means is that the only configuration Sony sells these laptops in is 64 bit versions of windows 7.I think you have it backward, It's the 32-Bit machines that can only support the 32-Bit OS. The 64-Bit machines can support both OS.
