Looks like clean installing windows 7 on the drive you want with the upgrade disk is possible but during a clean installation is there a choice to install the 32bit or 64bit version

I pre-ordered the Windows 7 Professional Upgrade disc back in July but when I bought it nothing told me if I was buying the 32bit or 64bit version so I thought that both were on it.
