Can I run the x64 Edition of Windows Vista?


 

If you go to the INTEL website and download the Processor Identification Utility and you view the "CPU Technologies" tab (by the way, the utility doesn’t work under Vista — they have a OS independent version)


The line that is important is "Intel(R) Extended Memory 64 Technology" if you have a "Yes" in the column on the right side then you’re good to go with any x64 version of Windows.

Good-bye x32, hate to see you go 🙂
