Questions about Keys included with W7

Hey guys this is my last thread about the activation i swear lol.
but anyway i should be receiving my W7 Upgrade 2day and bestbuy informed me that it will ship with the 32 and 64bit versions. Now does each version have its own product activation key? or are they both bound to one key? If anyone who has received their Home Premium upgrades and can let me know that will be great.

I do not have the upgrade version but there should be 1 key. If you had two keys you could activate both, which MS doesn't want.

They should both be bound to one key. You just choose during installation which version you wish to install. Or if it comes on two CD's, put in the CD with the version you want.

Hmm. Must be yours is an Upgrade key. Here's a full retail key which has notches on both sides.
