Does the license that comes with the $40 Online Upgrade download support both 32bit and 64bit installs?
I have an older AMD system right now with only 3GB of DDR. I plan to upgrade early next year. So I want to upgrade my Win 7 Pro (32bit) to Win 8 Pro, also 32bit. But then later, after I a major hardware upgrade, I would want to install 64bit Win 8 Pro.
Would this be possible with the Online Upgrade license, or would I need to but an OEM copy from a retailer?
I'm hoping someone can answer, because I haven't seen this addressed anywhere.
The license supports the SKU, not the architecture when it comes to 32/64. So a key for Pro will work for either 32-bit or 64-bit, but obviously not both at the same time.
