Windows 7: Any VISTA experts still around? COA/Version/question

Any VISTA experts still around? COA/Version/question

hey, I seldom see vista, but I took in 2 systems on trade and both are vista.... or have vista coa's, one clearly specifies X64 on the COA, the other just "Vista Home Premium">
are those COA's specific to the Bit version? I was wondering if I could switch the one that does not say "x64" to x64 indeed?

Also, somebody at MS finally got around to posting install files to some extent.
This TechNet site has a lot of iso archives for download but I see no "Home Premium" per se:
https://technet.microsoft.com/subscr...dex=5&FileId=0
was it just not thought important or is one of these listed here the same as "home Premium" ?
thanks for your expertise

Hi,
Interesting but this one does say Home premium
The key used usually installs that version if it's an all installer
I was also looking for a 64 bit Vista :/
Weird channel though and I'm not a member of this so I doubt a download will be offered unless you are
That I know of this channel has been discontinued ?

The key will work with 32 or 64 bit.

Same goes for pretty much any OS after XP

According to Wikipedia:

"(Vista was) available in six different product editions (Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate)."

"With the exception of Windows Vista Starter, all editions support both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) processor architectures."

"All editions of Windows Vista, excluding Enterprise, are stored on the same optical media—a license key for the edition purchased determines which version on the disc is eligible to be installed."

Can someone legally move from a version of Windows XP or Vista to a different version of Windows 7. For example could I legally move from Windows XP Home to Windows 7 Professional. Does Microsoft require that I have XP Pro or Vista Pro to move to Win 7 Pro?
