Windows 7: Need 32bit to 64bit Workaround

Need 32bit to 64bit Workaround

I have a developers disc for W7U 32bit that one of our developers got from the MS pre-release. I don't know why the developer's copy would be 32 and not 64. I just upgraded my whole system including a 64bit mobo & 8GB DDR so 32bit isn't going to cut it and I don't want to buy an upgrade just for that. One of the MS tech agents gave me a workaround from Digital River to burn a new 64bit disc but the link doesn't work as I probably mistyped as it was a very long URL given verbally. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello saidas108, welcome to Seven Forums!


All you need is the 64-bit installation media/ISO, Windows 7 is version specific and not bit-rate specific but it is against forum rules to post download links to MS software, Google is your friend!

No I won't and you are going to aggravate the wrong people if you persist.

Sorry. Didn't mean to offend. Was just trying to follow your advice but wasn't having any luck.

Since Google is not being friendly, it isn't ending well actually.

Did you receive a COA sticker with Product Key for that developer's pre-release version?

You want the Official Win7 ISO's, not sketchy torrents.

If your version isn't available unlock all versions to reinstall your licensed version with Product Key on COA sticker using this tool: Unlock any version eicfg removal tool

Other tips for getting a perfect reinstall based on hundreds done here: Reinstalling Windows 7

OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
