If anyone out there wishes to upgrade to Windows Vista 64-bit I’ve got some great news for you! Microsoft will ship you a copy of the 64-bit version of Vista for free!
From the Microsoft Site:
If your system features a CD drive but no DVD drive, you can order Windows Vista on CD-ROM. The installation files span multiple discs, so unattended installations are not possible.
If your system features a 64-bit processor, you can take advantage of its advanced design by ordering 64-bit software media. You’ll get the same interface, features, and functions, but you’ll get them in an operating system that takes advantage of access to vastly more memory. All installation files are on a single disc. Please note that 64-bit media is included in the box with the purchase of Windows Vista Ultimate.
The 64-bit version of Windows Vista is not for everyone. Please confirm that your system, applications, and devices are compatible with a 64-bit edition of Windows Vista before installing.
There are some caveats of course:
- You’ll need to already own a copy of the 32-bit version of Windows Vista.
- You’ll need to pay shipping and handling for the disc.
- You’ll need to fill out a form (for real.)
Simply head on over to the Windows Vista Alternate Media site and enter your product key to get started.
