Hello and welcome to the windows7forums.

Is this a purchased DVD or an RC?

what does RC mean? It's a free DVD of Tech Ed Europe.

They should be interchangeable, but don't hold me to that.

Is it in ISO format?

lol i don't know, how can you see?

And does anyone know where i could actually download the 64 bit version? I only have 32 on disc.
I can only find a way to purchase it, but is it possible to download it with my SN?

would i be able to run a profesional 64 bit with an ultimate 32 bit key?

lol, yeah it's quite confusing.
I received a free copy of Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit on TechEd Europe last week.
but of course who is using 32 bit these days, so i would like to have the 64 bit version, with that same key if possible,

and if there is no available download for Utlimate, then i'll just install professional if that's possible with the key of Ultimate.
