    Just do a fresh install of the 64 bit version, the key is good for both versions. :)

    Any disk will do, but you need SLIC 2.x in your BIOS, Vista key (that you have), certificate (either slipstreamed to DVD or installed later)

    look in C:\Windows\System32\OEM there should be a .XRM-MS file there that is your certificate
