Installing windows 7 HP 32 bit using a win 7 HP 64 bit Disk? Is it possible?

#1
I have a win 7 32 bit pc screwing up and i don't have a installation disk. only the product code. can i use a 64 bit win 7 disk and use the 32 bit product code?


Sorry if there are multiple of these posts. cant find an answer anywhere.

Thanks in advance

The product key is not bit specific. You can install either bit version and then active with the key. You must however use the same Windows edition. A Windows 7 Professional product key will not activate a Windows 7 Home Premium install.

Judging by the thread title you are using Home Premium disk and product key. If so you will be fine installing Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and then activating with the Home Premium product key.
