    WTB: Windows 7 32bit

    Does anyone have an extra copy laying around, a student version or corporate license copy? I'd be willing to pay something for it cause I'm ready to move out of XP.

    I wish I had an extra copy lol Guessing even though you don't want to buy it you don't want to use cracked/pirated copies?
    Which version do you prefer? Ultimate, Professional? Those are the only two I am 100% sure I have, cracked and untouched OEM/Retail copies.

    You could just torrent the activated ones, and refrain from installing update KB971033

    This will keep it all nice and unnoticed.

    99% certain you can't upgrade from xp without a memory wipe/fresh install.

    that being the case, wtf would you want 32 bit?

    Compatibility with various programs. We've had multiple clients require 32bit Windows 7 to work with whatever programs they might use for their work. Or lack of a need for 64bit OS (less than 4Gb of ram)
    And I wouldn't recommend doing an "Upgrade" of that nature with any OS, just leaves a dirty hard drive, why not do a clean install.
    I was wondering the same but assumed he had reasons. lol

    Bummer that they're not doing it for 29.99 or 49.99 anymore but this is still a solid deal. All you need is an .edu email account. I pounced on the student deal as soon as I heard about it and love Windows 7.

    I can do a clean install (wipe the HDD) with an upgrade copy, it's easy enough. I want 32bit because my hardware won't run 64bit or else I would. No, I do not want a pirated copy, just an anytime upgrade disc will work.

    I mainly want it for the better graphics capability and the windows 7 Media Center for my xbox so whichever version has media center.

    Especially when 64bit is the same price.
