Is the windows 8 upgrade 32 bit or 64bit
I just upgraded a 32 bit Vista machine to a 64 bit Windows 8 pro with discs I got thru mail order. I have another XP sp3 machine (32 bit) that is capable of a similar upgrade. To save a little money and time, can I upgrade to 64 bits with the upgrade assistant if I use the disc I already have? meaning - Do I get a general 32/64 bit activation code from the upgrade assistant, or is it 32 bit only, or is the activation code electronically included with the upgrade, as a download image. I've heard that the upgrade assistant would only give a 32 bit upgrade. I don't know how that part of the online process happens. Thanks for a good answer.
