Hello,

I am having a problem when installing win7, the system is telling me that the motherboard requires a 32mb OS and I was installing the 64mb. How to solve or download the 32mb OS?

Hi Jabulane1,

From your post it seems you are trying to install Windows 7 and you are getting an error stating you cannot install a 64-bit operating system on a 32-bit machine. To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7, you need a CPU (Processor) that is capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows.

You can read more about 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 from the below mentioned link:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows?ui=en-US&rs=en-001&ad=US

For your machine, you will have to buy a 32-bit copy of Windows 7 from Microsoft.

Please revert for clarification.
