    I would just like to thank everyone who assisted me in getting Windows 7 running again on my laptop.


    I am up and running again and its nice to have have my laptop fully functional again.

    I would just like to know the following:
    I am running Windows 7 Home basic 32 bit. Will my product key for my 32 bit work with Home Basic 64 bit?

    No advantages unless you have more than 3GB of ram.
