Is a Windows 7 license key valid for both 32-bit and 64-bit?
This will be a fresh install onto a system that currently has 32-bit Vista.

Now that I know Win 7 64 bit works great with my hardware. Can I legally upgrade my Windows Vista 32 bit to Windows 7 32 bit? And keep both versions of Windows 7 on the same machine.
If you have one Windows 7 license you can only have one install of Windows 7.
To install Windows 7 32bit you will first need to format/delete the 64 bit install.
You will need to buy a second license/key to install Windows 7 twice at the same time. There is no discount on a second license if you already have a license.
