I have bought a new laptop, that came with trial version of Windows 7 32 bit. I use 64bit OS, always, so I went ahead and downloaded 64bit version. I have keys for both versions, so there is no issue of activation. Problem is, the OS came in an iso format. Now, when I try to create a bootable usb, it does not work. I tried to directly run the setup, and it keeps saying current version is 32 bit, and I need 64 bit version to continue. How am I supposed to get 64 bit OS now, if the OS itself is not getting installed? I can't even get a installation disc from anywhere, neither my system support dvd. I am stuck with default bloated OS, and can't upgrade.
Tried the tool too. Same issue again. I can copy the files to USB, but unable to create boot sector. Online help suggested to download bootsect.exe for 32 bit and use that to create boot sector, but no link is available.
Update for downvoters:
I don't want to know how to create a bootable disc. I know how to do that. I am having issues because I can't run the required executable, as the only version available is 64 bit, while my OS is 32. If you can't read the full question properly, do not downvote. Kindly just ignore it, and move on.
