Windows 7: Win7/32 to Win7/64 On Two Laptops

Win7/32 to Win7/64 On Two Laptops

Good day, all ...

I have the academic version genuine MS install disks -- a 32 bit install disk and a 64 bit upgrade disk. Academic versions are SUPPOSED to let you install multiple copies so long as the machines involved are used for academic purposes.

I have my main machine at home, a homebuilt desktop that contains ALL my academic software and records for the last 25 years or so (translated from my old DOS machines from 1985 into current format). I upgraded this machine about six months ago from Win 7/32 with the MS Win7/64 upgrade disk that came with the purchase of the academic versions of WIN 7 about 6 years ago.

I teach on two campuses and I have a laptop dedicated to each one. Both have Win7/32 installed from the same MS branded academic install disk. Some of the 3D printer programs are coming out 64 bit only so I reluctantly want to upgrade both of the lappys to 64 bit.

So far I've wasted about 3 days (20-30 hours) trying every trick I know to get that 64 bit software onto those two lappies with zero results to share. They just don't seem to like either Dell or Lenovo.

Thoughts? Tricks? Suggestions? Other than dumping these two machines into the river?

Thanks,

Jim

Hi Jweir,

Any W7 key, will allow you to install either version, (32/64)
however Academic keys have a specific number of installs you can make -depends on the agreement with MS
Your IT Admin group will know -

Doesn't matter what brand the desktop/Laptop is
They likely came as OEM, your academic licence keys will either be VLK or more likely MAK,
which then gives you the option for an upgrade, ie home to Pro or Education
note the Education product key gives you access to additional programs

Just perform either a clean intall with 64bit media, OR
MORE than likely just do a Factory reset, bet they are 64bit version

if you want to go further
run this tool on both the OEM machines and we can check whether they have the Educational product key
PRIOR TO THE ABOVE

Hi

The key currently in use is the standard W7 Pro DEFAULT
and therefor will never activate, or upgrade

i also see
you have recently re-installed this OS version, last week or so.
Did this comp come with W8 installed (silly little blue MS sticker), there are no W7 markers showing.

You will need the Academic key for this comp
(hopefully you have it on your Desktop machine - run the tool on it as well)

That is interesting. I have no idea what that means, but it does not sound good. I'm willing to do almost anything to get this sucker into 64 bit. I've got a complete duplicate of the iinformation on this machine on my desktop, so we can't lose anything by trying. jw

No, this computer CAME with XP back in 2010 or so. Yes, I've been reinstalling W7/32 in a number of different ways to try and entice the 64 bit disk to take ahold.

(hopefully you have it on your Desktop machine - run the tool on it as well)

The ONLY key I have is the one on the sticker that was on the disk jacket that the disks came with. The version was NOT supplied by the school; we have a software "company" that we set up in California that sells software to us directly if we can provide proof of employment (check stub, ID certificate, etc.) It was purchased through the Community College Foundation.

Hi Jim,

Irrelevant but that machine might have had XP on it but it wasn't sold with it installed, as i said previously likely W8 it has all the indicators for it and EUFI boot option, which XP never used - way to early.

Right on to better news,
Your affiliate company that was set up SHOULD have the academic key you need.
MS provided schools/colleges with this type of licence to distribute to Teachers and Students.
(college paid given/sent to students free, Key only via Email, they then Accessed/downloaded from college Admin homepage)


THE ONLY KEY I HAVE Is this the same as the key on your desktop,

If so run the tool. I'll check it

If NOT provided its a W7 Professional key you can use it on the Lenovo, post results of tool again.

note
the Lenovo install is way out of date its only W7 and not W7 service pack 1.

You would be better getting the

win7 (including SP1) x64 installation media.

Then use the key from your desktop machine.

Very possibly. I told the company I would NOT buy a machine with Win8 on it and they probably scabbed in a version of XP. I changed the XP to Win7 as soon as I got it and it has remained thus for nearly ten years.

It would take a real leap of faith for them to give me the academic key after nearly ten years. All I want to do is strip off Win7/32 and put on /64 however I have to do it. Since I know I paid for the 64 bit disk, I'm not feeling any remorse for digging out 64 bit however I have to. Actually, I have TWO 32/64 bit pairs, Win7 Home Premium that came with another machine I have since sold. So, I've paid for it twice but don't have access to it.

THE ONLY KEY I [COLOR=Red]HAVE [COLOR=Black]Is this the same as the key on your desktop,

If so run the tool. I'll check it

If NOT provided its a W7 Professional key you can use it on the Lenovo, post results of tool again.
