Just installed Windows 7...Funny??

So I just installed Windows 7 on my Friends laptop.

He had Windows Vista 32bit.

After I installed Windows 7, it says that he has 64bit Windows 7??

How did that happen? Isnt it suppose to be 32bit Windows 7?

Someone please explain.

Thanks.

Was it an upgrade or a clean install...

You probably installed Windows 7 x64 on accident

You presumably used a 64 bit installation disk and did a clean install.

Congratulations (?), the computer now has 64 bit Windows.

Unless........?

Well their are 2 disks in the windows 7 package or at least mine). I guess you grabbed the 64 bit CD. On a side note do you have the proper computer to run 64 bit properly?

I am pretty sure its 32bit Windows 7...hmm?

How can i find out which Windows 7 CD he has?

It was a Clean install on the 2nd hard drive. On the 1st hard drive there is 32bit Windows Vista...

So something is wrong...

You had to have installed Windows 7 x64...there is no other explanation

Also you did a clean install...that better supports the theory

You do it the same way. Just use a 32 bit install disc.

You will need to acquire a Windows 7 x86 DVD...

Remember that the product key used to activate x64 will work on x86...where did your friend acquire his Disc from?
