XP x64 Edition Key Question, (Not Hacking!)

Post by DisabledTrucker » Sun Jan 29, 2006 8:48 pm

Does anyone know if I can still use the download from M$ with my current x32 key for x64 or not?

I've just purchased the upgrades to do an x64 upgrade to my system, (nothing fancy,) and I want to be able to run the x64 version of the OS on it, but I need to know if I will still be able to use my x32 Key with it and just quit using my x32 O/S that it goes to, in favor of using it with x64 that you can download from M$. Somewhere around here, I did have a copy of the version that you could do this with, but I believe that was a beta version, and I'm not sure I still have it, what I'm needing to know is if the current version has changed that or not, or has anyone tried it?

Just to let you know, I do have multiple copies of XP Pro, one is SP1 and the other is XP Gold that I've slipstreamed to SP2...among others.

The keys are incompatible, just as is the case for all other XP versions. The key will only work with the specific XP version it was intended for.
