      I cant belive it comes with 32 and 64 bit discs, you never got this with vista, well I dont hink anyway.

      I was worried as bought the 32bit, but am buying a I7 soon and wanted the 64.

      Way to go PC world.

      Are you just doing an upgrade over the top of Vista Brian?

      That's what I want to do but needed a guinea pig to see if it works first.

      Can you keep me updated on your progress pleas?

      I'm not so sure its 2 seperate discs, the 2 versions on one dvd I think.
      However once you install 1 version, be it 32 or 64, bit thats the version you are stuck with and you cant use the other.

      Its two seperate discs.

      So once I upgrade my PC and sell it, will just use the 64bit disc.
