I originally had Win7 , 64bit but then a tech friend ,FOR SOME REASON,reinstalled my system into Win7, 32bit. I have my Recovery disk for Win7,64 bit . I then did a EASY TRANSFER and saved the Recovery Win7,64bit to my files.
QUESTION:
***Can I now do a transfer from a 32bit TO 64bit , since I have the win7 64bit saved on my computer? :pt1cable: 
**I also have the Product Key number to Win7, 64bit . Its on the side of my computer . My Originally Win7, 64bit was factory installed when I purchased my computer.

You can't 'transfer' or 'upgrade' from 32 to 64 or vice versa without reinstalling Windows as the correct version.

I had 32 bit running. Microsoft said to turn off the pc and then insert the 64 bit disk. Reboot and the 64 bit would install. It worked for me. I have no idea how it will work on your PC.
