I paid ($129.00) for and downloaded an upgrade of Windows 7 32bit from Windows XP (SP3) from the microsoft website, I have since learned that my processor and system can run a 64 bit OS, and I want to know if I can convert to the 64bit version of Windows 7 by downloading.....or do I have to buy a disc with the 64 bit version. I know that I must make a 'clean' install, so I can't simply do an upgrade.....It would be very convenient and cost effective if I could download the 64bit version over the 32bit....thank you for any help you can give me.....Kevin
how do I convert windows 7 32bit to Windows 7 64bit(18 posts)
The versions are different.
Need to backup any important Data to another device or the cloud.
Prepare the HD.
Clean Install Win7-64.
You can prepare the HD with the Win7-64 Installation DVD using DiskPart in the RE from a Command Prompt.
I'll give you the commands if you want ????
I know that guys.
I said it was the same *serial* for the 2 versions. 32 or 64, they used the same serial number. with the triple pack, I did 2 64 bit installs and 1 32 bit install with the *single* supplied serial number in the case.
What exactly are you asking ????
I assume the (3) Pack will support (3) computers in any combination of Win32 and / or Win64.
Am assuming that (3) Pack will support (3) Win7-64 machines.
guys. I've hijacked nothing.
I was commenting on this
"Hi Kev. Contact MS, and see if they will give you 64 bit key. I doubt it, but always worth a try. What you downloaded contains the 64bit version. "
there is no 64bit key. the key for 32 works with 64bit. sorry if I offended anyone...?
but reading back, I've done nothing wrong and others made assumptions about what I wrote.
I think I'll just move on and not bother round here...
Khai, Hi. No need to be like that! What LH meant that your problem differs from the OP and it would be better to address it as a new topic.
This prevents kev24sev getting confused.
Guys, why have you got the idea Khai is asking a question? He does not have a problem, he is just stating the same key works for 32 bit and 64 bit.
He is giving input.
" I said it was the same *serial* for the 2 versions. 32 or 64, they used the same serial number. with the triple pack, I did 2 64 bit installs and 1 32 bit install with the *single* supplied serial number in the case."
Rick: " What exactly are you asking ????" Where do you get the idea he is asking anything?
LH: " Khai. You have hijacked this thread. Please could you start a New Topic." Start a topic on what?
I must have missed something when OP stated:
"....thank you for any help you can give me.....Kevin"
Appeared as if OP was asking for help.
Phrases and Language have always been a barrier on HTG.
