Windows 7: New PC and moving from W7 32bit to 64bit

Win7 Home Premium is the licensed version which you Upgraded using one of three keys included in Family Pack, correct? Because they are retail you can move those keys as long as you only have three HP installs at any one time using those keys.

Do you not have the disk included in the Family Pack any longer? There should be both 32- and 64-bit disks in the box. If not I'll loan you my 64 bit ISO file to burn to DVD or write to flash stick to do the reinstall if you'll read it and follow the steps to get and keep a perfect install. It will activate with the Family Pack key. If that key has been used on more than 3 PC"sit may require Phone Activation option during which when asked the key question "How many computers is this copy of Win7 installed upon" you are sure to answer the correct "3".

Thanks for that info and the kind offer. I do have the disc, but I thought that because it's an Upgrade disc that I won't be able to do an install using that disc only? I thought I have to go from Vista to Windows 7.

But if I can just use the W7 upgrade disc clean then that's great!

Yes if the booted disk sees any OS it will allow use of Upgrade version key otherwise leave key blank during install and afterwards do Option 3 of Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Thank you so much! I was able to install W7 cleanly from the upgrade disc. Thanks for all your help.

Though I'm now having wireless network driver issues. Is this something you're knowledgeable about? I posted about it here: Belkin Wireless Desktop Network Card F5D7000

Thanks again!

What`s the issue ?

Does the wireless adapter show up in Device Manager ?

Have you installed the drivers for it ?

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.
