Windows 7: 2 Disks in Windows 7 Box

2 Disks in Windows 7 Box

So, peeps,
It may be a stupid question, but since there are 2 disks in my Windows 7 box, can I install both a 32 bit AND a 64bit version, on 2 separate computers?

Lemeno,
JD

Only if you have two activation codes as the same one can't be used more than once at a time

redsoxm16 is right ... I purchased a version for work that came with a 32 and 64 bit disc ... It's a case of install one or the other pal --- but not both

There are some folks here that say you can install both the 32 and 64 bit versions and activate. As long as they are on the same computer and are not used at the same time.

But I am not a lawyer.

You cannot. Microsoft specifically talked about this. I cannot remember the source though >.<
But I wanted to do install both 32 nd 64 on my computer and I investigated the activation thing. I think it was on Microsoft's forums technet or someting that stated clearly that it was illegal...
