Windows 7: Windows 7 -2 Disks

Windows 7 -2 Disks

They gave me a 32 and 64 bit disk with the Windows 7 I bought. So I guess I have to put one of them on my computer and can't use them both for each one of my computers?

The EULA and license for Windows only allows you to use one of the disks per purchased copy of Windows. So, you have to choose between 32 or 64 bit, and use the provided key. They do this to avoid the expense and hassle of having to ship you the 64 bit version media, as they used to do with Vista.

So yes, one key, one computer, choose one of the two disks.

Exactly. You get to pick 32 bit or 64 bit.
