Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi all,


May I know is there any way to downgrade desktop PC HP run in MS Windows 7 64 bit to 32 bit? I want to downgrade it as some of software are not compatible with 64 bit.



Please advise.



Thank you

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

The process of "downgrading" from 64-bit to 32-bit would imply that you could switch OS versions but keep the other stuff intact.

Unfortunately, that simply is not possible; instead, you have to do a clean new install of the OS version you want -- and nothing is going to be retained in the process.

That's also true of going from 32-bit to 64-bit.  Same problems, either way.
