Hum.. I think you can dual boot 32 and 64bit OSs on one same drive. Though, that will take some space on your HDD.muthuselvan, from what I have been able to find searching I do not believe 32-bit drivers can be used on a 64 bit windows platform. It seems Microsoft wanted to ensure drivers were written in the proper way so when they switched to 64bit they enforced it with driver signing (ie all 64-bit drivers must be Microsoft-approved, for a fee of course . MAC leopard decided to allow 32bit drivers on their 64bit OSs to allow for a smoother transistion but that doesn't help us.
To use 32bit drivers in Windows you need a 32bit OS. From what I have read it would be possible to create a dual boot machine with a 32 & 64bit OS but I believe you will need two HDs. I do not know if they can be one Hd with 2 partitions or if they have to be physically seperate drives, as I have not tried this nor looked into it. The other option is to switch completely to 32bit. There is not a huge amount of 64bit-only software anyway so you will need to do what is neccessary for your job.
Best of luck.
This is what SIW gave me:Nibiru, what build are you running? My computer gave me an error when trying to use unlocker, because the driver isn't certified. I have to run test mode in order for it to function.
