Windows 7 32 bit to Windows 7 64 bit


Im wanting to go to 64 bit.

I have found these ISO downloads

Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO Image Downloads

Using the link above would i be able to use the 64 bit ISO to do a clean install as shown in this tutorial

Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

I would be using my current Win 7 32 bit product key

Thanks for your help :)

64-bit Windows 10 Pro

Hello Neptune, and welcome to Seven Forums.

A Windows 7 product key number can be used to activate either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of your Windows 7 edition.

You should be able to just do a normal clean install though.

Hope this helps,

Windows 7 32 bit

Hello Shawn and thanks for the reply. The problem im having is that im not sure if the ISO link i provided is going to work in my case. Is it a full version or upgrade version? Will it allow me to do a clean install to 64 bit?

Also the windows 7 32 bit i currently have on my system was an upgrade version (upgraded from vista to win 7 32 bit)

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, 64-bit

I don't recognize that link you provided, but you can use this link:

Find your version (Home Premium, Professional, whatever you have) in 64-bit English. It will work for a clean install. All you need is the Product Key. You may have to interact with Microsoft via an automated procedure or phone to activate.
