If it was included with the purchase of computer (pre-installed) then it might only include the one they provided with system.

I think my CD is a corp CD from my dads company.


Thanks!


Hello ilsmku, welcome to Seven Forums!


If that is a volume license disk you will need a volume liscense key to activate it, did your dad give you a key?

Yes he did. And he said I couldnt install it on any other computers but my one. So should this have the 64bit option? And if so, where in the install process does the option to select 32bit or 64bit chime in? Because, I get to the hard drive partitioning window, then click install and it starts to slap files onto my drive for install. Which made me wonder if its just installing 32bit, or if its going to give me the option to choose way later?

Show off! I just made a flash drive last week with all versions and platforms on it. Love it!


It's great, everything on one DVD and can boot the ISO to install in VirtualBox; though you need a separate key to activate each version.

OK but you still need two DVDs one x86 and one x64 to make the one DVD with all included. Just so there is no confusion

This is probably where I got this assumption.... I have an OEM disk, so I was unaware.

You have to have either the 64-bit OR the 32-bit DVD to install with, it's one or the other, you will not get to choose during installation.

You have to have either the 64-bit OR the 32-bit DVD to install with, it's one or the other.

Ah man! Well, thank you all very much for letting me know. Bummer! I wanted to try out 64bit since Im swapping out my MB, CPU, RAM, and adding a couple drives.

Thank you all for your help.

If you know someone with a 64-bit disk of the EXACT version your dad gave you, you may be able to use that to install the 64-bit version and then use the key from your dad to activate it.

I happen to have a Toshiba upgrade DVD that has both 32bit and 64bit on the one disc.
I haven't had a chance to boot it up and see how it works though.

I saw one (not Toshiba, not an international company, its a national company in India (HCL); the interface is custom; not like our retail X64 or X86 Ultimate ones. It nearly does "unattained". I mean, user dont have to choose versions.
I dont know how it does, though.

I'll see if I have time to boot it up tonight and see how the menus and install looks like.
