  • Hello,


    You can contact the chip or motherboard manufacturer directly to confirm whether the device supports the 64bit or you might tell the exact model here for the further research. However, please understand no matter whether the device is 32bit or 64bit, you can install Windows Vista 32bit OS on the computer. Thanks for your time and understanding!


    Hope the information helps!
