Windows 7

Postby ttreaders » Thu Jun 09, 2011 9:12 am

Hello all,

I have been given a student windows 7 32bit upgrade disc with cd key. What I am wondering is, if I can borrow a Windows 7 64bit disc from a friend - will the 32 bit upgrade cd key work?

No it won't work, needs to be 64bit...
I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.
I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up.
I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...

Ok thanks Mr T. Some people told me that the 32bit and 64bit cd keys are the same but I guess that was rubbish :)

Not rubbish. They were speaking of retail upgrades where you get both disks.
