I would like to install 64 bit Win 7 on a comp that's been running XP 32 bit.
I think my motherboard and cpu support 64bit but I'm not sure if I can get the drivers.
Someone posted the following here in topic "cpu not supported by Win 7" (01/14/2014):
"More than likely the issue is the mobo BIOS needs to be updated to recognize the CPU properly. Win 7 should run on any of the AMD X86 CPUs."
I have two questions:
1) Is the cpu I have (AMD Athlon II X2) an AMD X86 CPU?
2) And will I be able to download the drivers I need for Win 7?
I'm using an AS Rock motherboard which allows for 8 gb RAM and 64 bit systems. The motherboard, cpu and graphics card are all maybe 3 or 4 years old.
Thanks for any help.
