No. Also, no need to post an email address looking for replies when the answer can be posted here.

well, it depends on which version of the Windows 7 license it is, if its retail (or through MSDNAA) the keys are interchangeable between 32 and 64bits, if its OEM or System's Builder, then probably not

downloading the iso, do you know anybody with the disc you could borrow to install with

He mentions oem, 'a copy' and a legitimate license then leaves an email address to reply to. About par for a 2am post in the OS section.

I think more than any other section, the jokers and thieves appear here nightly.

Sorry. OEM only comes with one version. If you want the other, you have to purchase it.

And asking for someone's copy is illegal.

Your 32-bit product key will activate a 64-bit installation however please note that a clean installation will be required as you cannot "upgrade from a 32-bit OS to 64-bit."
