  • No - that's a 32-bit processor.  Only the Core 2 Duo processors have EM64T support.

  • If the processor is a Core 2 Duo, you can use 64-bit.  If it's a Core Duo, Core Solo or Celeron, 32-bit only.

  • It's Intel Core Duo processor, ID: 06E8, 1.83GHz, Cache 2048KB.

  • No - that's a 32-bit processor.  Only the Core 2 Duo processors have EM64T support.

  • Thx, but is it a good idea to install WIN7 32-bit on D620 or better XP?

    BTW It has 2GB RAM.

  • Your call.  Within a couple of years, XP will be history as far as security updates.  If you've plans to use the system beyond 2014, Win 7 is the way to go.  Otherwise, it's your call.

  • THX a lot, I'll install WIN7.
