Currently I am dual booting Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit with Windows 8 32-bit. I want to replace Windows 7 32-bit with Windows 7 64-bit. I have two partitions on Windows 7 and one for Windows 8 like this :
C : \ – Windows 7 installation files
D: \ – Windows 7 apps and files
E : \ – Windows 8
I want to ask whether installing Windows 7 64-bit on C:\ where Windows 7 32-bit was installed previously & leaving the other Windows 7 partition untouched (i.e D:\) where all my important files are stored, will I face any problem with that partition after installing Windows 7 64-bit?
Problems probably like files not working properly with 64-bit OS and other related bugs etc.
And will Windows 8 partition (i.e. E:\) be affected?
I am asking this since the boot loader is of Windows 8’s and I am reluctant to mess with the current configuration.
I have 4 GB of RAM now so I wanted to install the 64-bit Windows 7.
