I'm on the verge of building a new PC. I can get XP Pro OEM (or XP Pro x64) for £79 with a free express upgrade token to Vista Business.
As I understand it Vista as new in retail box comes with both x32 and x64 versions.
It would seem that the express upgrade route is a download upgrade only?
I want to be sure that I can upgrade to both x32 and x64.
If I go express upgrade can I only upgrade x32 to x32 or x64 to x64?
What i want to be able to do is buy the XP Pro (x32) and then upgrade to both vista x32 & x64 on seperate partitions.
Does this make sense?
Does any one know if i can do this?
I am right in thinking I can run either x32 or x64 if i have each on seperate partitions?
Forgive my obvioulsy hobbyist questions
