How can I tell if I have the right installation files for the 2008 std SQL 64 bit?  I ran the installation rules and it said that the 64 bit processor and the 64 bit Operating system was not applicable.  I want my installation to be 64 bit.
in the installation files, I can see the x64 folder.  Where was I to specifiy the install to be 64 bit?

If install path is not contain x86 in it, you are ok.
If you have setup.exe in x64 folder - try to run it directly from the folder, after you install all prerequisites

It is the same download, so how do I get the right part?  when I open it up to the 64 bit there is a setup100.exe, is that it?

I am installing this download now.  It is asking for a key, I thought SQL did not need the key as it need the CAL's only.

if you have volume licence and you downloaded SQL iso from eopen - it contains both x86 and x64 and doesnt asks for licence key
