I have a copy of Windows 7 (32bit) on CD that has been installed on our family PC for a few years. I was wondering if I could 'upgrade' to a 64bit version with the same product key but in a new build (family PC)?
I have double checked and the Cd only has 32bit version on it and is not OEM (it's a copy from a school - mum is a teacher and was entitled to it at the time)! Is there a way I can legally download a 64bit version and just use the same key on a new build? (Please note the school are no longer offering Windows software as they all have been given iPads....)!
I have found it difficult to get any reliable info online, I presume because of the fact I doesnt fall into either the 'retail' or 'OEM' category! Any ideas??
