Installed 32-bit Windows 8 (w/ Product Key). Want windows 64 bit. Help
I just recently purchased a copy of windows 8 off the Microsoft webstore. I loaded everything onto a bootable USB, but for some reason it didn't give me the option to choose b/w 32 and 64 bit, and I didn't realize that it installed 32 bit Windows! How can I do a clean install with 64 bit windows? I have the product key

I purchased a download off the Microsoft website. Apparently the installer doesn't let you choose between 32 and 64 bit, and since I was installing the iso on a 32-bit computer, it downloaded a 32-bit iso. Need a way to find a 64-bit copy of Windows legally :\
You can use your Product key to d'load a W8 ISO from the following links, but be sure to use a 64bit machine to do so...
Clean install by choosing Drive Options (Advanced) and delete all partitions, install to Unallocated Space to ensure a true clean install...
