  • Take a look at the minimum spec on the following article and follow the instructions.  It is same as installing OS on any machines.  Are you experiencing any issues?   But you cannot install Windows 2008 R2 on a 32 bit system.  So you have to stay with Windows 2008.

  • You cannot install 2008 R2 on a 32 bit machine.  2008 R2 requires hardware that supports x64.
