Windows 7: Toshiba OEM 7 Home Premium

Toshiba OEM 7 Home Premium

Hi, 3 quick questions for the gurus, if you please!

I bought a Toshiba Satellite L500-20Z, and it does not tell me which version I am running, ( 32or64 ) though I know it IS x64.

The in-store shpeil said it was equipped with Win 7 Home premium 64bit, with 32bit recovery partition.

Question 1 - is there any way to tell between 32 or 64 (apart from a "Program Files (x64)" folder on my C: drive), and

Question 2 - how do I tell what build I have? (the above link says nothing)

Question 3 - how to tell if the recovery is 64 and not just 32 without wiping my existing instal?

(I suppose I could take an image of my current C: drive and use that instead of the recovery partition if disaster strikes.... only trouble is with OEM theres so much bloat and crap that's incluided...)

I'm a noob, from XP, and this is my 2nd post. Thanks all!

I think that most of your questions will be answered by:
typing winver in search
right clicking on the computer icon on desktop and properties

Not sure how to tell about recovery but I am quite certain it is the same as your OS.

Your welcome, sorry I cannot answer the third question. We will both learn when another comes along with the information

The recovery partition will be the same version as what is installed in the machine, so if your version is x64, the recovery image will be x64, and vice-versa.

To see if you are running 32 or 64 bit, just look at the System page in Control Panel. It will tell you there.

As far as the build is concerned, it should be 7600.xxx It isn't really important as Toshiba probably modified that when they added the bloat ware.

I have a Toshiba A210 laptop with all the bloat ware added in. It's running Vista HP. What I did was to make the normal Toshiba recovery disks if they are needed for an emergency, and then I made a copy of a friend's Vista HP OEM disk. If anything goes wrong, I'll use that disk to restore, and use the Toshiba key, avoiding the bloat ware in the process. No worries on piracy there, since I'm using my own key to re-install.

System page in Control Panel doesn't give the info, I'd post a screen grab but I'm at work at the mo... maybe when I get home.

Thanks!

1: You should know, based on what you paid for when you bought the laptop, but your system properties should tell you clearly.
2: Who cares what build you have? If you bought it from Toshiba, it came with Windows 7 final...no need to know the build number, unless you are messing around with a hacked warez copy...at which point it won't be discussed on here.
3. The recovery will be whatever OS came with your laptop, which should still be installed.

I'm making an assumption here, but based on your questions, you seem to have installed a copy of Windows 7 that you didn't get from legit sources. I may be wrong, but if you are only using the legit copy that came with your laptop, you wouldn't need to ask these questions.
