Where do you buy your Windows 7 x64 DVD from?

A question - is it possible to make a 64 bit UEFI USB stick from within a 32 bit installation? I know there's issues with doing so on a 'normal' (non-UEFI) USB install.

If you have a 64-bit Windows 7 ISO file, then yes using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below.

Thanks, Shawn - looking forward to trying it out once all the hardware gets here. Just wanted to make sure there weren't any 'gotchas' to trip me up.
