x86 or x64 - How to Know?
Posted on 2012-09-13
Just a quick question for something I come across fairly often.
If I have a machine with a failed, formatted or even no hard drive present and I want to re-install Windows, is there any way I can tell from the Microsoft COA sticker whether it is for 32-bit or 64-bit.
Generally they just say for example "Windows 7 Home Premium" - Now that could be x86 or x64 and I don't want to waste time installing the wrong one.
Thanks in advance for any help.
