I purchased the Windows 8 Pro upgrade - to upgrade from Windows XP and Vista. The package came with both Windows 8 32 bit and Windows 8 64 bit disks. The information I was given was that I could install Windows 8 64 bit while upgrading from Win XP PRO 32 bit. The 64 bit version would not install and the install process required me to insert the 32 bit version and install it. Now that the 32 bit version of Windows 8 is installed, I cannot get the 64 bit version to install. What gives? I really need the 64 bit to run software that is not available in 32 bit version.
P.S. The PC went through all the updates and is now updated to Windows 8.1 32 bit. I still need 64 bit! If I have the upgrade disk, why can't I upgrade to 64 bit? How do I get the 64 bit version without another purchase?
