HPET Mode, 32 or 64?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
If I switch from 32 bit mode to 64 bit mode in BIOS, would that allow me to run a 64 bit operating system? I googled it but I couldn't really find a straight answer.

This covers what you're asking.

In short: no need to select 64-bit for 64-bit OS, but need to select 32-bit for 32-bit OS.
