Is there a tutorial I've missed?

Or am I confusing IE 32-bit and 64-bit with W7?
You're most welcome bludgard69, I've been stuck as you many times in my computer life. Tooks me ages to learn Tricks & Parameters!!!

-In Internet Explorer 8, Windows 7 x64 install both x32 & x64 IE Browser.

-Windows 7 can be installed in x32 bits OR x64 bits (much flavored for some security reason).

Both are two different things!

-I do not think you can run both x32 & x64 at the same time, but manies Applications still work under x32 bits on a x64 bits based system.

Therefore that's why you can find on x64 platform :

C:\Program Files (x86)
and
C:\Program Files

Or

C:\Windows\System32
and
C:\Windows\SysWOW64.

Unless you are planning to upgrade your RAM to at least 4GB I would install 32 bit Win7.

It is mainly advanced graphics programs like Adobe Creative Suite which can benefit from 64 bit. I sometimes install 64 bit for someone and find it puts every single program except IE8 into the 32 bit program file. And it can be fussy.

You can of course install either with your license, change them anytime you want. You can even try a dual boot to see which you like by comparison. But I would check which drivers Acer makes available for your model since you might need to import some.

Be sure to rightclick scan your ISO download with MSE immediately upon completion.

Am I On The Right Track?

This IS preperation.From the way things are going,it will be months before I try to complete this task.By then my computer will probably be begging for a clean-install!


I found an .iso and downloaded it.
Below are images of what I have-very vague indeed.
ImageBurn copied and verified to DVD.

Does this look at all familiar?

I realy don't want to mess with anything that is not legitamate.
Is there any way that I can verify what I have?

I've got the ACER drivers from ACER Support.And updated BIOS.It flashed fine.
I know there is a ton of other stuff.I'll concentrate on verifying W7 .iso for starters.

Thank you for any insight.

Oh,and a GOOD MOANIN' from S.C.!

Some of these ACER drivers are un-needed.I'll do more research.Rather be caught with than without.

If they did provide a "MD5/SHA Checksum" you might want to verify your .iso.

It could looks like this:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit:
Name: en_windows_7_home_premium_x64_dvd_x15-65733.iso
SHA-1: 336779EA6B65F63E11A609B4D021439C47AB315B
CRC: 56D954E4

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit:
Name: en_windows_7_home_premium_x86_dvd_x15-65732.iso
SHA-1: CC9D8220B2179E784D85BF1EA98D2EE2190D534F
CRC: 5DF6DBA0

Burn it onto DVD and see if it launch when you insert it in your Cd/Dvd Drive. No need to launch it at reboot to know. Just do it while on your account. You can STOP/CANCEL the Process at any moment.

Keep your drivers safe and try to find some for the Hardwares too. When you'll have finished install Windows 7 Ultimate, you'll be able to smoothly install all your drivers.

Bootable ISO:
