How to Downgrade Vista Business 64 Bit to Vista Business 32 Bit? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I recently purchased a laptop with Vista Business 64 operating system.  However, I cannot find any VPN providers that will work with a 64 Bit OS.  Thus, how can I downgrade my 64 bit OS to the 32 Bit OS?

     

    Thank you in advance your help.

  • You'll have to purchase a "Full Version" of a Windows Vista 32-bit edition and perform a "clean install".

  • Please Note that if you buy a Retail copy of Vista, you will only get the 32 bit edition (except Ultimate that has both 32 and 64 bit software, incuded on the DVD), but you can then got to http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/1033/ordermedia/default.mspx and get the 64 bit software.
