Windows 7: 64 bit Window 7 ultimate

64 bit Window 7 ultimate

I currently have a 32 bit window 7 ultimate beta version that has expired for sometimes now. Everyday I have received many reminders or my laptop crashed because of this expired version. I just bought a OEM 64 bit Window 7 Ultimate from Newegg for $174.00. I can not seem to get this new 64 bit Window 7 Ultimate version installed. I need help to get this OEM version installed without losing all my files. Please help. Thanks

Hello Iswitzerland,

Sorry, but you are going to have to do a clean (format) or custom (previous OS files dumped into a Windows.old folder as backup) install of Windows 7 instead. You will not be able to do a inplace upgrade to the newer OEM version. I would recommend that you backup any files that you do not want to lose to be safe though.

Hope this helps,
