This question already has an answer here:
My laptop is a 64 bit machine, but I need to download a 32 bit version of the Ubuntu OS because my school has said that a particular program I need 'was made with the intention that the user will not be running it on a 64 bit version of the Ubuntu OS'. That is pretty much true because I have tried many ways to run it, and all my attempts have failed.
The problem is that after I have downloaded the client for the 32 bit version of Ubuntu (I'm sure it's the client for 32 bit because I have even redownloaded it) and installed it into my computer, the system settings in Ubuntu will say that I have the 64 bit of the OS installed. I check this by going to system settings > Details > OS type. My question is... how do I install a 32 bit version of the Ubuntu OS on a 64 bit window 7 machine?
