Qusetion on upgrade compatability
My mother board on an old 32 bit system has gone bad. I will be upgrading the mother board to a 64 bit system and also buy a new processor, memory, and graphics card.
I would like to keep my old hard drive until I can transfer the data. My question is will the new hardward run with the old hard drive that has 32bit Win Vista? If so, are there two types of drivers for the new hardware, 32 bit and 64 bit?
I will probably upgrade to Win 7 64 after the data is transfered. Once I upgrade the software would I just also upgrade the drivers for the sound card, mouse, etc to 64 bit?
Any advice would be appreciated.
