    Is there any way to upgrade from an OEM 32x bit to 64x bit without having to buy the actual Windows key? Finding legitimate Windows 7 Keys is pretty hard to find where I live

    The key you have currently should work for 64 bit as well.

    How do I get the Windows 7 ISO? The Microsoft Website gives me an error message every time I enter in the product key

    It doesn't seem to work at all, it tells me to restart the PC and put the installation disc back in again . When I do that it says the same thing, and when I try to use the setup application it tells me I need a 64x version

    I've definitely had licenses that were 32 bit only. Likely stuck with what you've got.

    Only the Retail version had the license for either 32 bit or 64 bit. And as far as I know, if you have 32 bit OEM. Then you would have to buy the x64 license.

    You could try to migrate your Win 7 key to Win 10.

    Others here may know if that can let you get a 64 bit copy.

    If he updates his Windows 7 32-bit to Windows 10, it will be 32 bit also.
