Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
I bought a new computer a couple of months back (and I am a CPA) and did not look closely enough to the specs. What I thought was a good deal: a HP Pavillion MC m8517c, came with 5 gig of ram, a 750 gig HD (great for a CPA crunching numbers) however it is a 64 bit 2 quad processor, which in & of itself I guess is also a great thing.
However, accounting & tax software will not perform on the 64 bit platform. Of the Companies I have been dealing with for many years (such as CCH & Sage) tell me that their software will not even be tested until the2010 season (which will be the 2009 tax year) so I have 2007 and all of 2008 to go through plus any back years that will not run.
My questions are:
Is it possible to get a cheap (or free) program to partition off part of this massive 750 gig drive, then install a copy of Vista Ultimate I bought to install on my Win XP machine that is now usless (as the heat sink fell off, as I was cleaning out the dust, & I do mean just blowing out the dust with compressed air, and Best Buy told me to trash the machine) and designate it as 32 bit so I can run my software?
Thank-you for any insight,
