bump please help

Did you qualify for a free vista upgrade through Acer?

If so I'm not sure that will qualify you for a 64bit upgrade...as your XP MCE is 32 bit??so maybe you only qualify for a 32 bit version of Vista Home Premium as the upgrade.

Your COA should be on the Windows authenticity sticker that is on the PC case.
