A useless update.  There are only a few rare users who can benefit from the difference.

Thanks for the reply, but the upgrade is useful if you prefer to stay with WIN 7, instead of opting for the intrusive WIN 10 upgrade.

  • Upgrade Windows 7 Pro 32 bit to Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

    I bought Windows 7 Pro (32 bit) a year ago and I got a disk, the disk of 32 bits, with my purchase. So my question is, how do I upgrade to a 64 bit version of Windows 7 Professional?

    I heard that there is a chance that I could have someone (Microsoft) send me a 64-bit version because they key will work for each version, but it sounds too good to be true... is it? Also, if I can't do this, can I have a 'Windows 7 Professional Upgrade' (64-bit) and boot from the DVD drive and improve it like that or you can during the passage of XP or Vista?
    I guess, the best/most simple/best way to upgrade Windows 7 Pro 32 to 64? Thank you!

    Copies of the retail of Windows 7 include 32-bit and 64-bit discs.  If the copy you purchased only had a dvd then you didn't buy a copy retail, but a copy of the OEM System Builder.  OEM copies do not allow the buyer to two versions of the software.  You can buy a copy at retail to upgrade license (or copy of full license of Windows 7 Professional).  Anytime Upgrade does NOT change from 32-bit to 64-bit.  You must use the retail to change between architectures.

    In the Windows 7 Professional 64 - bit 'Upgrade' disc is identical to the version of Windows 7 Pro 64 bit retail, or is there a difference?

    Yes, all the professional retail DVDs are the same.  This is the product key that determines was looking for, it's a full license or upgrade license.  No matter what type of product key, it is, the installed software is exactly the same Windows 7 Professional.

    "I heard that there is a chance that I could have someone (Microsoft) send me a 64-bit version because they key will work for both versions.

    What you have heard only related to Vista.  Editions of Vista retail below Ultimate contained only a 32 bit dvd and buyers had to order a dvd 64 bit Microsoft for a $10 shipping and handling.  Which does not apply to Windows 7.  All editions of the retail of Windows 7 include the two DVD.  Since you did not purchase a commercial version, Microsoft refer to the OEM for support.  Since there was no OEM, you are out of luck.  That's why an end-user should not buy OEM software directly.

  • How to uninstall Windows XP PRO so that I can install Windows Pro 8.1?

    Problem? My Windows XP PRO is not listed in the control panel. (The system came with the new computer).

    I want to uninstall, & replace it with Windows 8.1 pro (disk).

    Is it done in safe mode? Also how a clean uninstallation is completed?

    MS says that an upgrade is not possible (since '23 programs, etc. need attention').

    All advice appreciated. Best regards, Doug

    Original title: how to uninstall Windows XP PRO, which is not listed in the control panel?

    Of course, it is not in the control panel. This isn't how it works. You must reformat and perform a new installation of Windows 8.

    Your computer will not be able to be upgraded. You must consult the computer manufacturer to see if there is even the disks available to this end for Windows 8. Probably not.

    And, even if all the drivers were available, you always have to reinstall ALL your programs and data on the medium of origin or files and backup of the date.

    You can not, for at least one (and two possible) reasons.

    1. it isn't clean if you want to have two computers, or you
    you want to remove from the old computer and put it on the new. If
    you want once, you can't do that - the rule is very clear: there
    a copy (or a license) for each computer.

    There is nothing new here. This is exactly the same rule that has been in
    effect on all versions of Windows from at least with Windows 3.1.

    2. but even if you want it on a single and from uninstall
    the old computer, you can't do it. It is because if it came with the
    computer, it is an OEM version and the biggest drawback to he a
    OEM version, is that its license it permanently binds to the first
    It is installed on the computer. He can never legally be moved to another
    computer, sold or assigned (except with the original computer).

  • How to reboot Windows 8 Pro mode safe?

    I have a set of Steelseries MERC keyboard, an Asus Crosshair IV Formula motherboard, and I've been advised to perform a full scan with my Kaspersky PURE, Malwarebytes and Superantispyware in Mode without failure.  I don't know how to restart Windows 8 Pro mode without failure.  I tried pressing the F4, F6 and F8 keys.  I guess I can do a cold reboot, but I prefer to do this properly.  Thank you.

    On your login screen, click on the power icon that gives you three options: sleep, stop and restart.
    Hold down the SHIFT key and click on restart.

    When the computer reboots, you get a blue screen with options.

    You'll need during cratch because there is no way to upgrade a 32 bit OS to a 64-bit version of Windows.

    Check your BIOS to make sure that your DVD drive is set as the first boot device, and then save your settings (if a change was required) and get out.

    With the 64-bit DVD in the DVD drive, restart the computer.

    Choose the "Custom" option and then delete the existing system and Windows partitions, click next to continue the installation,

    Since you enabled the OS using the 32-bit product key most likely you need to activate by phone this time.

    How to do a clean install:

    Boot from the Windows 7 DVD

    To learn how to change your BIOS options to boot from the DVD drive, the following tutorial:

    http://notebooks.com/2011/05/05/How-to-load-BIOS-and-change-boot-configuration/
    Click Install now
    Accept the license agreement
    When the option is displayed to select a type of installation, click (Custom advanced)

    Select the disk partition where you want to install Windows 7 click Next.

    You will receive the following warning:

    The partition you have selected may contain files from a previous Installation of Windows. If so, these files and folders will be moved to a folder named Windows.old. You will be able to access the information in Windows.old, but you will be able to use your previous version of Windows.

    (At all costs, do NOT click on anything in Format, deletion or Partition name.) So even do a custom installation, your personal files are still kept. Click OK

    The installation program will now begin installation. During installation, your computer will be restarted several times.

    Once the installation is complete, you can complete the Out of Box experience as the choice of your laptop, create a username, password, your time zone. You can then proceed to download the latest updates for Windows and reinstall your applications and drivers.

    You can then retrieve your personal files from the Windows.old folder and reinstall all of your applications and drivers.
