64 bit doesnt magically become 32 because of the product key. Gotta be something with the disk. But as long as your happy with it.
not sure what you are talking about. My nb came with windows 7 home premium 64 bit. under my product key, is this, x16 97062.
I wanted a clean install.
I downloaded the windows 7 home premium 64 bit sp1, and i am wondering if the x17 24209 is a different build number or something.
so we are clear, I am aware of the difference in a 32bit/64bit os. If i did download a 32bit version, then my product key wouldnt have been an issue.
now, since ive gone through ms phone support, everything is fine. I just had to verify my version of windows. I downloaded it with a download manager as well.
Also, I burned all of my drivers to a disc prior to installing my ssd and fresh os, so that was never an issue.
Falcon, I think i confused you or something, srry for not being specific enough.
