Downgrade from 64 bit to 32bit?

is this possible? I downloaded the 64bit from the .edu email address thing, but I want 32bit...

Thanks!

you will have to do a new install. Just download the 32 bit, the key works for both 64 or 32 bit versions.

Downloading Windows is kind of a gray area. Personally I don't think there's anything wrong with downloading Windows from any location if you already have a legitimate serial that you bought and paid for.

If you have a legit product key, contact Microsoft. They'll be able to help you.

torrents is a way but make sure its a clean image not some modded one.

I am surprised microsoft dont offer download links as there is probably a lot of people who may want to do clean reinstalls but have no media, typically oem users.

W7 64bit:Ok to install 32bit programs outside the 32bit programfolder?
OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
