I just recently purchased a copy of windows 8 off the Microsoft webstore. I loaded everything onto a bootable USB, but for some reason it didn't give me the option to choose b/w 32 and 64 bit, and I didn't realize that it installed 32 bit Windows! How can I do a clean install with 64 bit windows? I have the product key

You would probably have to reinstall windows with the 64bit version which you can maybe (not sure) download from the Microsoft website or do a google search and see which legit site may have it. You can then use the same key

I purchased a download off the Microsoft website. Apparently the installer doesn't let you choose between 32 and 64 bit, and since I was installing the iso on a 32-bit computer, it downloaded a 32-bit iso. Need a way to find a 64-bit copy of Windows legally :\
