Windows 7: Installing OEM inside Windows

Windows 7 64 bit.
 
 

The annoying thing is, I made a copy of my image to restore to but it's 64 bit and I am now on 32 bit. Windows doesn't like that!!

Bare Foot Kid, not sure that is going to help me.

I have 32 bit Home Premium installed, but all the drivers are missing for my laptop. So no wifi, LAN, screen res etc. I really need to boot from the W7 that is sitting on the recovery partition. Or somehow use the 64 bit image backup I have.

Forgive me if I've not understood the 2nd link correctly.

The copy I made was an image copy through Windows, it's not bootable or an install as such. Just an image copy that you can restore to in W7 assuming you have the 64 bit version.

What I want is to be able to install the copy on the recovery!!!

1) So you made a system image, yes?

2) but did not make the Start up disk, yes?

3) Go to System Repair Disc - Create
& download the 64bit Start up disk.

4) Do a system Recovery.

Use 32bit for 32bit image.
Use 64bit for 64bit image

Ok.

When I made an image copy (non bootable and saved to an external hdd) I was running 64 bit.

I am now using 32 bit and have no connectivity to download anything.
