If it will, what do you put in this field?
" *Product name as appears on CD: "
Uh, "Windows Vista Home Premium"? Isn't that what it says?

Did you pick "Upgrade/downgrade from 32/64 bit"? If you did then they already know which one you need. The COA number tells them.

Maybe you should read this thread.

Anyway, you put in your company's name! Or nothing if you aren't a company.

Can't thank you enough, I dont know how I couldnt find that link!

Got it through to the price, 15.99. So how do they know I want 64bit not just a replacement 32bit? (Edit, just read up the page the COA number tells them, ahah)

And to confirm, my system will work with 64bit?
Also 64bit is better performing than 32bit just because its 64bit?

Thanks
David

Yep you have a Q6700, so 64-bit is no problem. And you'll get more RAM so it'll perform a bit better.

All right folks, my system manufacturer came through for me! Velocity Micro sent out a CD with both bit-versions of Vista Home Premium, and it installed perfectly on my system. Thanks again to the original poster!
