Default Boot i386, install amd64

Can I boot from a i386 pendrive and install amd64 via web?

My understanding is that the 32 bit boot loader is copied from the install media and you will need a 64bit bootloader.

jggimi > Hello, and welcome!

If that HP Pavillion has more than 3GB of RAM you will be better off with the amd64 architecture rather than using i386. You would need to re-install, an "upgrade" to swap architectures is not supported.
It seems to me like the same would apply here, it might be best if you just download the
new 6.1 and install that.

I actually did, but since I already had a i386 pendrive I wanted to do an experiment, that's why I asked. Didn't have time though
