Can I order 64bit rather then 32bit?

Hi in the next couple of days I want to order my free windows 7 upgrade and I was wondering can I order the 64bit dvd if my system is on 32bit or would I have to pay extra, I called HP Australia about a week ago and they said they have nothing to do with it, that its a third party company that deals with it, well they gave me their website, https://ebiz3.mentormediacorp.com/HP...e/Country.aspx and said that I could email the company so I did asking these questions, i got a automated email saying i would get a reply in 3 days still nothing, does anyone know the answer to this question? thanks.

You can probably order a 64 bit version, but your specs say that you have a Celeron, which is 32 bit.

It looks like you are able to run 64 bit, so I would definitely go for it, TheSchaft was correct in stopping you in your tracks, as he did not have the pic of your system specs as such, at the time, Nice one TheSchaft

Looks like you can run either, from the screenshot.

Be advised that there have been more issues with the 64 bit version than the 32 bit version, and some of your current programs may not have 64 bit versions available..

That said, 64 is the wave of the future - until the 128s come out in a couple of years.

Thanks jfar. I didn't want anyone to get an incompatable version.

FWIW, here in the great state of Texas, any version comes with two DVDs - 32 and 64.
