HALP: Windows 7 Pro

Hi there

Can anyone tell me the difference between:

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit, English, 1 Pack, DSP OEI (DVD) Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit, English, 1 Pack, DSP OEI (DVD)

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, Full Version (PC DVD) Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, Full Version (PC DVD)



Is it that the full version has 32bit and 64bit?

Re: HALP: Windows 7 Pro

Correct.

Your retail will let you install either, change your mind and reinstall also comes with both discs. With OEM your locked to one and only get the corresponding media. Not a big issue as most people will only install 64 Bit now.

Also note with OEM you're not meant to install it on any new computers if you upgrade your current. Though I never had any issues with my old XP or office 2003 OEMs

Completely the opposite for me. Installed it, entered my wireless key and off I went.
