    Urgent OS info please

    Hi all
    Just ordered Vista from ebuyer to use the free Windows 7 upgrade but realised I have ordered the 64-bit version.
    Should I have ordered the 32-bit version instead?

    Why? What difference does it make if it's a clean install? 64bit will be fine won't it?

    It'll be fine. Don't know why you didn't just order Win 7 though.



    I've read there may be compatibility issues with hardware and applications.
    Plus it's £10 cheaper:thumbsup:

    Because it's the cheapest way when you dont have an OS to start with?
