    Windows 7 DVD Only 32bit?

    Does this mean that there is only the 32bit version on the DVD? Would there be a way to make it 64bit?

    +1 agree....I am on 64 and I would not downgrade to 32 regardless if it was free or not.

    Sun, for me your attached picture is not showing ... When Microsoft released Vista you either had a 32 bit DVD or 64 bit DVD, they did not have both on one DVD. The DVD's contained all the different versions of the OS (basic, home premium, ultimate, etc.) and depending on your product key is what was installed on your system.

    So, if you want 64 bit Windows 7, you will need the appropriate RTM or released DVD.

    Is there a way to tell whether or not it has the option for 64bit without installing it?

    I was under the impression that both versions were on the disc when you purchased it. With that being a promotional disc, I don't know what they would do.

    One key difference between 32 bit and 64 bit is that you do not have a memory limitation. If your PC has 4GB of memory and you are using a 32 bit operating system, windows can only recognize and use 3.2GB of that memory. 64 bit operating systems do not have that memory limitation.

    The motherboard in my particular system supports upto 8GB of memory which is what I have installed and taking advantage of.

    Your system bios needs to be able to support 64 bit operating systems to take advantage of this.

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah that's one of the big reasons I need 64bit, my system has 4gb of RAM. Also my CPU can support 64bit.

    Does this help Sunkast?
    Looks like they are both on the same disk, that's what it sounds like at least.

    Found this at their site...Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade - Buy and download from Microsoft Store

    It says this on every one of their products:
    This product includes both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

    gotcha, that makes sense since it's not even out yet.

    I just found out that I can't get it unless I pay for it.

    Should have read the fine print.

    Just my 2 cents here but a product key, even for beta/RC software, should not be publically disclosed.

    Allow me to weigh in here. I got the same thing from the Windows 7 launch event. The disc ONLY has the 32 bit OS. I downloaded the Win7 x64 retail ISO and burned the disc. It installed and activated flawlessly with the same install key. Hope this helps.
