Help Me Get Vista Ultimate 64-bit Media Please!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm still new to the forum and I'm building my first machine, I have a build log at http://www.overclock.net/intel-build...ns-please.html if anyone wants to check it out and comment or anything, but I have 1 small problem... 64-bit software.

I went to a Microsoft conference about a month ago, and they gave free copies of Vista Ultimate, but the DVD is only 32-bit, and I've been assured by others that the key works on 64-bit as well, but I don't have the media for it. I've asked Microsoft if I could get the 64-bit media, but they said since I only have a promotional copy and not a retail copy, they won't send the media. I'm just trying to get my hands on an ISO of Ultimate 64-bit to either download or someone to mail me a copy and I'll pay for it. I would just download a torrent of it, but they all seem to be hacked copies, and I just want a legitimate version as I have a legitimate cd-key. If anyone could help me out, I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

I could be wrong, but i don't believe there is a legal way to download the install. You may just have to buy it. Hopefully someone else will have more information for you.

Look up Windows Vista altenate media. i bought a retail Vista Buisness upgrade and ordered the 64bit dvd that way. Same key worked.

Yes, the Key is for either 32 or 64 bit.
You can get a 64 bit disk from Microsoft (unless it was a promo apparently).

Ok, awesome! But will that work on a non-dell system? And is it Ultimate edition?

Yes, sadly, since it's a promotional item, they will not send me the media for 64-bit, so I'm trying to find another way to get it. I really don't want 32-bit, but I sure don't want to pay $180 when I already have a free cd-key...

Not all of them are hacked. You just need to check around. I can mail you a copy of mine as long as you pay for a DVD and postage. Message me and let me know. Mine is the retail copy btw and is the full edition.

Not if it's OEM. Retail versions only...if it's retail then you're good to go.
