Default Re: OMG! Vista 32-bit key = 64-bit key?

I have some experience with that. The key becomes bound to the installation you use the first time. That's irrelevant to the hardware. Which means (like I did) if you try to activate 64-bit Vista on the exact same system that you activated a 32-bit Vista installation, you won't be able to. In that case, I had to contact Microsoft and after about half an hour on the phone(they even connected me to a US technician because nothing worked) they deleted the installation data completely from their servers. So, I was able to reactivate my 64-bit Windows, which is now bound to my key...
