  • Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption requires a Universal Serial Bus (USB) Flash Drive or a system with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 chip.


Advantage of 64 bit Processor.

  • Improved Performance 64 Bit Processor can process more data and thus applications can run faster.

  • Enhanced memory. 64-bit operating system can access more memory (RAM) above 4 gigabytes (GB). Whereas 32-bit OS can support up to 4 GB of memory only.

  • Improved device support. Windows 7 is built on the same kernel as Windows vista, so most of the drivers that work with Windows Vista can also work with Windows 7.

  • Improved security. 64-bit processors provide more secure operating system environment through Kernel Patch Protection (KPP), mandatory kernel-mode driver signing, and Data Execution Prevention (DEP).

  • You can install 32-bit versions of Windows 7 on computers with 32-bit or 64-bit processor architecture. But when you install a 32-bit version of Windows 7 on 64-bit processor architecture, the OS will not take advantage of any 64-bit processor features or functionality.


Limitations of the 64-Bit Versions

  • The 64-bit edition of Windows 7 does not support the 16-bit Windows on Windows (WOW) environment. If your organization have legacy 16-bit Applications. You can however run those applications within a virtual environment by using Client Hyper-V.
