A Windows 7 product key is valid for your Windows version and NOT your chosen Windows architecture. Whether or not this is the case with Vista you will have investigate for yourself.exe3 wrote:I agree that it's about time they started doing this. Though that means I'll have to upgrade from Vista 32-bit (unless there's a way to install the 64-bit version legit, if so please tell me, I have Vista 32-bit legit OEM from when my brother and mum bought this computer at Aldi) and I don't really wanna get a new OS for this computer, it's not good enough to deserve it imo.
As a product key is not associated with what is not the disc you could accidentally acquired a disc image from somewhere for your version of Vista and you will be ready to roll and rick…exe3 wrote:I had heard something like that a while ago but even if that is the case I still don't have a 64-bit disc.

There is that Microsoft sticker at the back of my computer though. Does that mean I have to get some sort of OEM copy? Also was the cdkey hardcoded into the disc by any chance given that I didn't need to put the number in in the past?
