Steps to Run 64 bit OS on 32 bit Supporting Computer.
With help of this tool you can also check your computer supports 64 Bit architecture and Virtualization Technology (VT) or not. I have done this for example. Also I’ve checked out if 64 bit architecture can support by changing in motherboard BIOS (AWARD). But after tried a lot I couldn’t make it possible.
And I’m sure it’s not possible to make 32 bit architecture eligible to run 64 bit OS by changing in motherboard BIOS.
