though the few 'clean' disk images of Vista x64 have the lowest amount of seeders.. perfect time to loose my x64 dvd AND have my external HD crash

But yes, it is the 32 bit version of Vista.

Yeah, I accidentally snapped my Halo PC disk, and I couldn't return it, so I just downloaded an .iso and used my own CD key.

No, it costs $10 I believe. Although for the CD-Key given with this evaluation copy, I only had the 32bit DVD option in the pull down menu.

Yeah I got mine 2 days ago. I'll definitely use it in my rig until I can get a better deal on 64 bit Vista, any word yet on those...*ahem* alternate methods of acquiring a 64 bit DVD? Will this 32 bit key work with a 64 bit DVD? I also don't get the option for anything but 32 bit on that website. $10 Vista would be quite acceptable.
Missingno.

Just got mine in the mail.

Does anyone know where you can get a OEM copy of Vista x64 Ultimate with SP1? I'm not talking hacked/cracked or whatever i am looking for a untouched DVD image to install with a legit serial in the form of a Microsoft auth'd download.
