    I received my vista32ultimate with new pc (how do you know what is the
    correct ver to use?) I built this with sales but they never mentioned 32 vs
    64! i thought i knew a little but this is aggravating since i had no
    familiarity with XP (still used win98) Should i be using 64bit with the high
    quality of pc i bought? Is this something that was overlooked?
    I also tried to use my prod key and it says it is not recognized which gives
    you free ms help (a very nice option) but ??? OK i am grrrrrrrrrowling
    and i keep getting the same installs after fixing, wht the heck???
    Help, do we get a free 64 bit version? Was this something they didn't fix,
    think about? help help
    Then was told i need to make backup discs, i hope that works cause i got to
    do it now

  2. If Windows Vista came preinstalled on your new PC, the PC manufacturer
    is totally responsible for Vista support. Contact them for assistance.

  3. PCs that comes preloaded with Vista from OEMs are responsible for providing
    the 64-bit Vista media if you decide to migrate from 32-bit Vista. Deciding
    whether you should go 64-bit depends on your needs, if you are running
    memory intensive applications. If you have any need for the larger memory
    address space provides up to 128 GBs, then its the Windows for you. Other
    factors include Kernal Patch Protection which makes it more secure.
