"If I Install Windows 32bit Twice Would That Make It 64bit?" is a catchphrase posed by a noob user asking if installing a Windows 7 32-bit version twice would yield a Windows 64-bit operating system. The phrase is often posted on tech help and other forums to troll other posters in a manner similar to Download More RAM or Alt+F4.
The original instance of the question was posted by user fwittt on the Microsoft TechNet forums in May of 2010, and reads:
I have a question,
I recently took delivery of my new Dell, which came with the 32bit version of Windows 7, however the PC is capable of running at 64bit.
If I install Windows 7 32bit twice would that make it 64bit?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Initially users took the question at face value, including a board admin who explained in detail why the question didn't make sense, but in addition, users began generating a series of ridiculous replies. The original question is in the top 5% most popular posts on the Windows support forum, with 250 points and 31 replies.
This question is commonly asked in help forums, most notably Yahoo Answers, where it has been posted or commented more than 3,600 times. In addition, screenshots of the original forum posts have been posted to the humor subreddit /r/funny, where the most popular post, from October 2013, has received more than 2,134 points (90% upvoted). Often, the top comment on both a Yahoo Answers post or a reddit post is "Yes, but you will also get Windows 14." In addition, a post of the screenshot to the Facebook page "Best Status" received 476 likes, 376 shares, and 105 comments.
