Awesome, thanks alot guys!
Edit: Would I just be able to upgrade it from a 64 bit disk? Probably not, eh? I'd lose everything in the process if I could, wouldnt I?

No afraid not. You are migrating from a 32 bit OS to a 64 bit os so you will need to perform a clean installation. So back up those files before you begin.

Were did you obtain your copy of 7?
If you legally purchased it.... You should be able to contact MS and pay for a media disk

Your specs say its custom built. Did you build it?

I had it customized before I bought it. I usually build my own, from older computers, but this one, I'm probably going to switch alot of stuff around anyways, to make it more "Mine"

Who was the manufacturer then?
You may be able to contact them,
But when you customized you should have been given to option for 64 bit.

Yeah, well I might do that. But, I was wondering, I have the boot files for Windows 7 64 bit, but I only have 20 700MB CD-RWs, would I be able to use those somehow? Like, burn files to one, and others to another, and boot them sequencially?

I don't think that is going to work. Windows 7 is about 3.2GB, so you'll need a DVD. Back up your files, make a new partition for windows, and install into that.

To the best of my knowledge, that will not work, you have to use dvds.
If ms had intended for you to be able to do that they would have released a cd version on the install files....
