    Why?

    I actually just noticed this even tho i've had it sense launch. I ran the upgrade assistant on windows 7, it gave me no option so I assumed it automatically detected 64bit.

    I go to run my WEI benchmark and notice im running 32bit.

    There doesnt seem to be a direct link to a win 8 pro 64bit iso I can download, I have to use the assistant, So im trying again and well see what happens.

    Anyone have any idea on how to remedy this? Has this happened to anyone else?

    No it was 64, either way I did a clean install, formatted and all.
