Windows 7: Need to know version of vista without being able to turn PC on

Need to know version of vista without being able to turn PC on

My hard drive failed. I ordered a new one and I just plan on reinstalling windows when it gets here. The problem I am having is that I don't know if my windows vista home premium product key is for 32bit or 64bit. My current hard drive has completely failed, so I can't turn my pc on and check. How can I find this out so that I can get the right windows disc?

The key isn't tied to 32 or 64 bit. The key works for either version.

Any version XP or Vista to Win 7 Pro
Can someone legally move from a version of Windows XP or Vista to a different version of Windows 7. For example could I legally move from Windows XP Home to Windows 7 Professional. Does Microsoft require that I have XP Pro or Vista Pro to move to Win 7 Pro?
