Will Vista 32 and win7 64 run together

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm having problems running some of my older games so I thought I could duel boot vista 32bit in my win7 64bit system. I don't have my back up system anymore.The P4 rig I gave my neice last yr for christmas started to act up and I can't figure out whats wrong with it so I gave her my other 775 rig .Now seeing I'm out of work I'm wanting to play some of the older games again,like Doom3 and things along those lines. So what is my question...Can I run both OS in my main rig?? I've read where people have problems running XP and Win7. I thought I would stay as new as possible and try vista.It seems that these old games only run on 32bit OS.Any help would be great.

I thought I remember running Doom3 (steam version) with no issues on my Win7 x64 system. Maybe check for patches?
