  1. Win8, who knows. Win7, use what you want, but these days 64 is preferred unless you have specific compatibility or 16 bit needs and refuse to dual boot
  2. Unless you have a specific reason to use 32bit, you will want to use a 64bit OS.
    Heres Windows 8 64bit. Its an OEM copy, so the product key is only valid after its first use if its used again on the same laptop.
