Well first your hardware needs to be 64bit capable, and with the limited knowledge we have on this Tiny thing (never heard of them), that could be a bit of a problem.
If they were a cheapy kinda deal, I would suspect that the hardware is not 64bit capable but you never know.

About the differences, 64bit can address ultra-gigs of RAM where 32bit can only address 3.3G's. Also programs that are written to take advantage of the 64bit system will run way faster than a 32bit counterpart. 32bit programs run on 64bit but not any faster than a 32bit system, but 64bit is the way of the very near future.
Of course the 32 vs 64bit comparison is allot more complicated than I said here and it's far more than just able to use more RAM and some programs working faster, but that's neither here nor there if your system isn't 64bit capable.

Processor: AMD athlon 64 processor 3700+. 2.39 GHz
Ram: 1GB
and its running windows 7 build 7000 32 bit
If it is a Athlon 64 processor, can that be run in boards that are only 32bit? If not, then heshould *theoretically* be able to install 64bit....

There are drawbacks as well as advantages to 64bit processing....

64bit processing will take more RAM up on average than it's 32bit coutnerpart - but 64bit processing can *address* more RAM as well.

32bit processing is limited to a 4GB (2 to the power 32, aka 2^23) bits of addressing - that is 4 GB. 64bit is not *double* that - it is 4 GB * 4 GB (2 to the power 64, or 2^64, or 2^(32*2) or 2^32 * 2^32 which is 16 TB....

Since you only have 1 GB on the TINY anyway, stick to 32bit....

It seems like it's a bogus torrent which, is very unfortunate what with the time it may have taken you to download. Any TRUE installation of Windows 7 will have the correct build number in the bottom right.
