Hi.
I have an OEM Windows 7 home premium on my laptop. It came on a partition. I have just ordered an upgrade of ram from 3 to now 8 gigs. However I need to have Windows in 64 bit for it to recognize the 8 gigs. So I will format and reinstall the OEM windows. I just did a scan of my computer to retrieve my product key for Windows but as I want to get rid of the partition and do a full format I need to download a copy of Windows 7 Premium OEM and install it from a disk or usb with my own product key.

So my question is . . . . . will my product key allow me to install 64 bit Windows premium OEM?

Yes, You can, but it depends on whether the windows Disk version is formatted to 64-Bit. It is unlikley they won't be 64-Bits, seeming as 32-bits are going out of date..
