  • Can I use a key to upgrade Windows 7 32 - bit for the upgrade to Vista 64 - bit, 7 64-bit, with a 64-bit upgrade disc?

    It's a bit complicated, but I appreciate all help.

    I have the following:
    1. access to a genuine copy of Windows Vista 64-bit (regardless of the version I want) through IEEE Computer Society.
    2. a Windows 7 Professional 64-bit upgrade disc purchased through a program of student software in 2010. Shortly after using the disk and the key, the laptop I was using died due to hardware problems.
    3. a drive to upgrade Windows 7 Professional 32 - bit bought via the same pattern of student software, including an unused key.
    Student software system only allows users to buy a copy of each version, so I can't buy it simply another copy of the 64-bit version.
    I wonder if it is possible to use the key of the 32-bit version with the version 64-bit upgrade disk to upgrade a 64 bit Windows Vista installation to Windows 7? If this is not the case, unfortunately, I'll be stuck with Vista.

  • 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.

    I have a Travelmate B115-M and I upgraded from Windows Pro 8.1 to Windows 10. The problem is that it automatically upgraded to 10 32-bit Windows. The drivers from the Acer website are all 64 bits. I tried 2 times, the second time, do a clean install, but now I can't go back to 8.1 for Windows because it doesn't show the option anymore.

    Well, finally I've upgraded to 64-bit Windows 10. The solution was to go to the Windows website and choose the option to install on another PC, downloaded the file on a USB key and do a clean install.

    You cannot use a Windows 7 Professional anytime upgrade product key with reinstall media, it can be used only to upgrade license of qualification basis where you bought the upgrade in the first place (Starter, Home Premium).

    The first thing you need to do is to get your key to Windows 7 Professional upgrade Express:
     
    An e-mail containing your product key will be sent to the e-mail address associated with your Windows Live ID account or e-mail address you provided if you ignored the account configuration. Note: If you use an email tool or spam blocker spam filter, be sure that you can receive e-mail messages from microsoft.com.
     
    What happens if I lose my product key?
     
    If you lose your product key, you can return to

    www.Windows7.com/GetKey and sign in using the "Sign In" link in the upper right of the page. This will allow to recover your product key if you have established your account with your Windows Live ID. If you do not configure a Windows Live ID account initially there is no record of your online product key. Check your e-mail since it is the only trace of your product key.
     
     
     
    or

    Here are four utilities, which can display your product keys if they are still there:

    -------------------
     
    The next thing you need to do is to reinstall the base license that you upgraded, Windows 7 Starter Edition or Home Premium.
     
    If your computer is pre-installed with Windows 7:

    New computers that come pre-installed with Windows often have what is called a recovery partition. This is used to reinstall an operating system in the case of a system failure. To access it, you need to start when you start your computer by pressing a function key. This can be either F1, F2, F9, F10, F11, F12 key DEL or tab. See the manual that came with your PC for instructions on how to reinstall Windows.

    If your recovery partition is not available or damaged, you must contact the manufacturer of your computer, and request that a defined recovery disk you can use to reinstall Windows 7. They could practice a small shipping and handling.
    ------------------------------------
    This is how the recovery partition is accessible to most popular brands...
    For Dell, press F8 on the keyboard until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
    For HP, press F11 directly after switching on the device
    For LG, press F11 directly after switching on the device
    For Toshiba, press and hold "0" BEFORE and during the power upward
    For Acer, press and hold ALT + F10, as soon as you see the logo
    For Asus, press F9, as soon as you see the Asus logo.
    For Samsung, press F4 to the power upward...
    For Fujitsu, press the F8 key directly after the power
    Advent, restart your computer. Then, press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting system recovery"

  • On Windows 7 upgrade from vista 64 bit stops after that it says the settings and files of collection

    I am tring to install Windows 7 upgrade from vista 64-bit.  I'm to the point where it says collect files and settings, and it stops running, and then in the details it shows 3 files located in the c: users\my name\appdata\local\temp\WER followed by numbers.tmp, then version, appcompat or mdmp. (example: wer5090.tmp.version.txt)  He said that these files are the reason. Any ideas how to solve this problem?

    1 disable any security software before attempting to upgrade

    2. make sure that your computer is updated (devices and applications)

    3. disconnect all external devices before installing.

    4. check your hard disk for errors:

    Click Start

    Type: CMD, according to the results, right-click CMD

    Click on "Run as Administrator"

    At the command prompt, type: chkdsk /f /r

    When you restart your system, your computer will be scanned for errors and will try to correct them.

    1. click on start, type msconfig in the search box and press ENTER.

    User account control permission

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or click on continue.

    2. in the general tab, click Selective startup.

    3. under Selective startup, clear the check box load startup items.

    4. click on the Services tab, select the hide all Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable all.

    5. click on OK.

    6. When you are prompted, click on restart.

    7. after the computer starts, check if the problem is resolved.

    Also run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor:

    If the upgrade continues to fail, you might want to consider doing a custom installation:

    Boot from the Windows 7 DVD
    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.
