Windows 7 OEM -- Both 32 and 64 Bit?

I know that on Retail Win 7 you can change from 32 to 64 bit without buying another Product Key. Does the same thing hold true for OEM copies?

I have Windows 7 OEM and it is only one CD, for 64 bit OS.

Hey Jim,

Yes, but you must use the 32-bit or 64-bit installation DVD/USB you want to activate with the OEM key.

Are you saying that I can change my OEM 32-bit to a 64-bit using the same Key? (after the Clean Install of course)

Correct, but you must use 64-bit retail installation media, and activate it with your OEM key.

Thank you very much for the info. I have read conflicting opinions of this on various boards.
