I have a Windows 7 64 bit and now i am thinking to install Ubuntu 32 Bit on a separate partition as dual boot.Can i do that? Someone told me that I cannot dual boot a 64 bit and 32 bit OS as it can mess my hard drive. Please tell me is it true or a myth. Thanks in advance
yes you can. I have had such configuration for about an year, and ran perfectly fine. Only thing was that I could use only 3 GB RAM out of available 4 GB in a 32 bit installation.
