One course is to download the dell windows 7 pro x64 installation media. You would have 64 bit and no diificulty with activation.

The dell iso files are big, because they are multi language.


Or you can back up the activation from your current installation.
Then use a standard ms iso to install win7 pro x64.
Then restore the activation

Currently, I have the Windows 7 Professional 32-bit version running
In that case, it makes sense to install Pro 64 bit

Backup the activation with dism++ first. Install 7x64 pro. Restore activation.

The link I sent is for Win 7 HP SP1 64 bits.

Any Win 7 installation disk has ALL versions (HB, HP, Pro and ultimate) you just need to rename \sources\ei.cfg to \sources\ei.cfg.org and all versions will show on to you during installation.

Steps to do once you've downloaded the iso file.
- Install 7zip 32bits to use on your 32bits computer or 7zip 64bits to use on a 64bits computer.
- Format a USB drive (4G min) as Fat32
- With 7 zip extract all files and folders to the USB drive (4G min) formatted as Fat32.
- Go to the \sources\ei.cfg on the USB drive and rename to \sources\ei.cfg.org
- Extract the Boot.zip to the efi folder.
boot.zip
- Open a cmd window as administrator and type:
diskpart
list volume (take note of the number of the USB drive)
select volume n (replace n with the number of the USB drive from above)
active
exit (to exit diskpart)
exit (to exit cmd)

Now your USB drive can boot as Legacy or UEFI.
Once you boot from the USB drive, go to install, choose the version you want to install, go advanced, delete ALL partitions on the disk and proceed.

Where did you get the 7 Pro - 32 bits, from Dell?

According to that service tag number, you have THIS Dell Inspiron 15 N5040 Notebook PC.

It was purchased on January 12, 2012 in the U.K. and came with Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit.

It came with an Intel Pentium P6200 processor and 3 GB of DDR3 RAM.

Once you have installed Win 7 64bits, my suggestion is to set Services - Windows Update - Manual and on WU page set it to Never check.
Then run UpdatePack7R2
Simplix is a single file (850MB) that contain all updates since Win 7 released up to date. It has all security and non security updates without the trash (telemetry and tracking). Very good.
Then run WU manually to find updates for Office etc and decide witch one to install.

To uninstall the telemetry, run cmd file to uninstall those KB files.
kb_spy.cmd.txt
Rename it as KB_Spy.cmd and run it.

Thank you very much for helping guys!
@Megahertz07 - do you think its the ISO file you sent me? The USB should be good and it was properly formatted.

The Win7_HomePrem_SP1_English_x64.iso link is to download a Win 7 HP SP1 x64.iso
Just click on it and your browser will begin to download.

Follow my instructions on post #14 on how to create a boot able USB drive with it.

@Megahertz07 - I followed your instructions and when I tried to boot my USB this screen appeared and there was no change.
