64 bit option during install

This is going to sound stupid but I've installed windows 7 a few times now and I seem to be overlooking the point where I choose between the 32 and 64 bit version. I've got build 7000 that I'm working with. Any insight?

Did you burn both iso images on one disk or see two made up? By labeling one for 32bit and a second for the 64bit 7 you know which one you are placing in the drive and booting from.

That I don't know I got the disk from my brother so I guess I'll have to find out which one he put on the disk. Is there a place to download the newer builds or did I miss that point?

32bit and 64bit are to separate version, with to separate DVD/ISO
The only way to choose between the 2 versions is with the choice of the DVD/ISO you use to make the install.

OK looks like the one I got was the 32 bit version. Is there a place where I can download the iso for the 64 bit version?

They closed downloading the iso's, but you can still find them on torrent sites, but thats about it.

You can get a new key from here still however.

The last day for any download was Feb. 12th allowing you to see any legit download in progress finish. The next available would be the RC1 for 7 if made publicly available.

The torrent downloads wouldn't see any support from MS there not being confirmed through their own identification for any available updates. The product keys are strictly for the 7000 builds and no others in case the 7022 was leaked at a torrent site.

If your brother burned the iso images to disk you can install 7 on more then one system. In fact the testers are advised to do that for various reasons like different hardware configurations when submitting feedback. Any bugs found can then be reported and worked on by the developers both MS and 3rd party.

Thats not quite right, the 7000 keys work in 7022, and so does windows update.

Which ecosystem program would that be I wonder? If you are not a regular tester but one who signed up only for 7? Frequent Questions | Ecosystem Services Research Program | Research and Development | US EPA OR...?
