    Vista Tablet -> 64-bit professional

    Hi all, I just burned my 64-bit professional ISO file onto a bootable DVD and am about to install it onto my current 32-bit vista... Before I proceed, I want to make sure that when I do a clean install and erase everything on my laptop, nothing will happen to my tablet right? As in, after I...

    Student 32 to 64-bit upgrade - invalid ISO

    I was trying to see whether I could upgrade my system to 64-bit... it's possible but for whatever odd reasons, I just can't download the ISO file for a clean upgrade. I went to the gizmodo site and tried the link provided -- I think it's the same one supported by digital river? It still gets cut...

    Student 32 to 64-bit upgrade - invalid ISO

    Thank you so much... I think I am just going to ask for a refund and reorder the 32-bit system. My ram is only at 2.0 GB, so I don't think 32 vs 64-bit will make much of a difference, right?

    Student 32 to 64-bit upgrade - invalid ISO

    No, my firewall is off... It is so frustrating to keep trying to download the same file without any success! :(

    Student 32 to 64-bit upgrade - invalid ISO

    And another question...does a clean install (I assume this is the only option to go from 32-bit vista to 64-bit Windows 7) mean that it's going to wipe out all the data I had on my laptop previously?

    Student 32 to 64-bit upgrade - invalid ISO

    Thanks, I just double-checked and the file states that it's 3.0 GB as well, but as soon as it starts downloading, the process gets terminated automatically at no more than 300MB. I have tried this over and over again for no less than 30 times and I've never gone past the 300MB mark... my...

    Student 32 to 64-bit upgrade - invalid ISO

    That is not a silly question at all! I am actually confused by that... I saw under the directions that Microsoft/Digital River posted that the ISO file is around 3GB, but when I went to the link provided (by Lifehacker), the file was 170mb... I don't know what 3GB ISO file they're talking about...

    Student 32 to 64-bit upgrade - invalid ISO

    Hi guys, I just purchased the student-special-offer edition of Windows 7 this morning and went ahead to buy the version for 64-bit system even though my current system runs on 32-bit, figuring out that I could perhaps configure everything (I checked, my computer is 64-bit compatible). However...
