Can I do a fresh install of Ubuntu x64 (I currently have Ubuntu x32 bit installed) on a multi-boot system (Win XP/7/8)? Will I run to any problems as far as booting up to my other O/S'es?

  • And you want to keep the 32-bit version!? Why would you want that? – John Scott Nov 15 '14 at 4:44
  • No I don't want to keep the 32-bit version. I want to replace it with 64-bit – wonkster Nov 15 '14 at 4:45

Download the x64 version and boot it off a USB. Then install it on the existing partition. No, it will not affect your Windows OS.
