Can I hot swap HD in 32bit and 64bit

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Can I unplug my HD with 32 bit Windows 7 in it, then use another HD to install Windows 7 64 bit? I’ve been wanting to evaluate Windows 7 64 bit, but I am currently running Windows 7 32 bit.

Yes you can do this thing. This is just like installing two windows on a hard drive. However it is very easy in the case if you have two separate hard drives in your case.

After unplugging your 1st hard disk that has windows 7 32-bit, plug the new hard disk that you are going to use to install the 64-bit version.

Do all the installation process and do whatever you want to do with it.

Then you can also attach the 1st hard disk back in the system but use the 2nd sata connector so that the computer detects it as a secondary hard disk.

You can also set this thing from the BIOS. In the boot order make the priority of any hard disk first from which you want  to boot first. This way you can tell the computer in which version to boot.
