I am now running Win7x64 on my Toshiba Qosmio X300 wich have 2 HD,s. 1 with Vistax32 and 1 with Win7x64.
1-When i boot in to Vista i can see that Vista is on C, Win7 on D and F an partition with HDD recovery from preinstalled Vista from Toshiba.
2-When i boot in to Win 7 i find C as Win7 and D as HDD recovery

This configuration was not like this when i had Win7x32 instead og Win7x64. So can anyone please tell me whats happening here ?

Go into disk management and assign a drive letter to your other partition.

You can't run x64 on a x86 computer.

The Toshiba Qosmio X300 comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

As of my knowledge, there aren't processors which support both 32 and 64-bit operating systems.

Please tell me I did not just see what I thought I just saw, otherwise I'm going to p*ss myself laughing...

To the best of my (and just about everyone else who has a x64 CPU) knowledge...every 64bit chip since 2005 has been able to run a 32bit and 64bit OS, please please please read up on it, otherwise you're going to look like an idiot.

Either somehow my Laptop is magically running both Windows Vista SP1 (32bit) and now Windows 7 X64, or it's because it's been able to do that since the Chip supports backward compatibility with a 32bit OS.

Edit: And what Jabs quoted (didn't see what was in the quote box).

I have no problem about to see ore not to see the different HD,s but i only wonder why it was like that and have never seen it before. This did not happend when i used Vista Ultimate 64 and Vista Premium 32.

And here are the trees of Win7 and Vista and as you see i have got 2 desktops in Win7. And it is also 86 files in Win7 just like when i used Vista 64 and Vista premium.
I would liked to only use x64 but have some software that does not run ( and never will ) under x64 and wich i use a lot.

aah, ok, the way you worded your first post made it sound like only two of your drives were showing up.
I've seen this before with Vista, it likes to call the partition you have Windows installed on C: even if it isn't in another OS.

Some time my English is not so god when i should explain something. I have worked in different companys and traveled almost all over the world in my works, so i some time think in my native language Norwegian and some time in German and English. So in and " Old " brain like mine it can be a little confusing.

But when using Win7x64 i only got 1.9 in disk data transfer, but in Vista i get 5,5 and because the Intel drivers do not work with Win7
