Well, there is no official dvd that has both 32 bit and 64 bit files, and you yourself say it is downloaded. Nobody here can support you on an unknown, probably illegal dvd.

I hope you have a legal key? If you do, see if you can borrow a 64 bit disk from a friend or even download one (if you can find a malware free copy) but stay away from these home-brewed disks.

When you downloaded it, how many files did you actually download, and were they .iso files? Can you post an image showing the layout of files on the disk?

When you download, you get to decide which architecture (32bit/ 64bit) you want, when you buy the retail version, the package includes 2 disks (one for 32 bit, another for 64 bit).

Quote:
The Windows 7 installation disc package includes both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7. If you download Windows 7 from the Microsoft Store, you'll need to choose either a 32-bit version or 64-bit version to download. For help deciding which version to install, see 32-bit and 64-bit Windows: frequently asked questions.
Source: Installing and reinstalling Windows 7

So, while downloading, you either chose 32 bit or went by the default option, thats why you have a 32 bit disk only.

Windows 7 Ulti. x64
 
 

Dino, Welcome to Seven forums. It says something to the effect that if you call the store you can get a DVD sent to you for no charge. You need to call them. Good luck to you.

Hello dino13, welcome to Seven Forums!





I'm sure what you downloaded was only the 32-bit version, the 64-bit comes separately on another DVD.

If you have both 32-bit and 64-bit ISOs you could create a single DVD that would be able to be used to install any version of Windows 7 but you will still only be able to activate the version that coincides with the key you own.
