No I just finished explaining that you would use the 64 bit installer for your version provided in Clean Reinstall tutorial below, with the same Product Key used for 32 bit.

The OP doesn't have a 64 bit DVD to do a 64 bit install. That's the way I read it anyway. He will now though. And an extra Windows 7 product code.

The only thing I can think of is nikonfruit wants a store bought DVD Windows 7 Pro 64 over a ISO download.

Why one would want to buy another key with the store bought Windows 7 Pro 64 DVD is be on me.

Not to be picky but that's the first time you've posted that link in this thread? For me it is anyway, I have signatures turned off, if that's where it is. I see references to it but no actual posted link in your posts? That may be why I'm missing it.

Ok, it did occur to me (eventually) that that might be the case. At first glance, it just looked like he forgot to post the link. My bad. If he had said "in my sig" I would have clued in right away. I find things too cluttered with signatures turned on. For me it gets old looking at the same picture over and over again. It's nice an clean with them removed. Just a heads up, I'm likely not the only one that disables them.

You can't install 64 bit Windows with 32 bit CD/DVD. You also can't do an upgrade install from 32 bit to 64 bit. To switch from 32 bit to 64 bit you have to clean install with 64 bit install media. Is your 7 Pro 64 bit DVD pre made or did you make it from a download? If it's pre made it should be bootable? Where did you order it from? Did you "press any key" when prompted to, to boot from the DVD?
