Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601)

If your PC is under warranty I can understand how you'd want to get it running perfectly before the warranty period expires. See if the shop will make you a disk.
Gonna return it on Friday, and according to, that website that's posted in step #1 at clean reinstall, I can turn my 32-bit to 64-bit with the same key? Anyways, thank you for helping me.

Yes, you can install either 32- or 64-bit with each license, just not both at the same time.
