Windows 7 ships in both 32 and 64 bit when you buy one. If you install BOTH versions on the SAME pc (but on separate partitions, of course), will you be able to get both installations VALIDATED by Microsoft??? Anybody tried yet?

More about : windows install

Should be ok, others have asked the same question so it shouldn't be too long before we get answers.

I don't think it would be a problem, but you're really only supposed to have one copy installed on the PC at a time. Retail disks give you the choice of whether you want to install 32 bit or 64 bit, but you only have one license. I would expect you to only be allowed to legally have one copy (either 32 or 64 bit) installed at a time, but not both.

they use the same CD key
you CANNOT validate both. Only one
thats just the same as using the OS on two different computers
but there's also no reason to have both...
just install the x64
