Hi,

I have just realised that perhaps I've installed something that isn't meant to work, or is it? - hopefully somebody can shed some light.

I have installed Vista Ultimate 64-bit edition on my laptop which has an intel core 2 duo 7350 2GHz CPU.
A 32-bit processor right?

So how have I manged to get a 64-bit OS running?

Can you install it but it just performs like a 32-bit OS?


Cheers for the help.
Steve.

Almost all new CPU's since several years ago have been 64bit capable or partial 64bit instruction set.

Here's the quick info for your cpu:

Core 2 is a 64-bit processor.

Core Duo is a 32-bit processor.
