I have just bought a HP DV 9540 with same cpu.
I first tried 64 bits and it worked, but now I use 32 bits, as I am told there 
are more well tested programs for this architecture.
You can use either, but do not mix.
I used the textual install interface, as I had problems with the graphical 
card (the screen went black).
After reboot I restarted in safe mode and used below website, to get the 
graphic card working.
