ISO and IMG Files
If you have recently purchased a new computer, you may be able to upgrade using Windows Anytime Upgrade. See Windows Anytime Upgrade (link) for detailed instructions.

WHAT IS AN IMG OR ISO FILE?
An IMG or ISO file is a complete image of physical media such as a CD-ROM, DVD, floppy disk, etc. that contains all of the files in a particular package.

32-BIT VS 64-BIT
Many packages are offered in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. In the case of Windows 7, this applies to all of the Home, Premium, Professional and Ultimate editions. License keys provided for any of these editions will work for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The choice of version is up to you and is directly related to the ability and compatibility of your hardware. Note the following:  To run 64-bit versions, your computer hardware must support 64-bit applications for this product to function. Refer to your manufacturer and/or retailer for specific information regarding the capabilities of your hardware.  If you are unsure as to whether you require the 32-bit or 64-bit version, refer to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows-vista/32-bit-and-64-bit-Windowsfrequently-asked-questions. Important: If you are planning to upgrade from an existing 32-bit Operating System to the 64-bit version, you must use Custom Install as the Upgrade Install option may not be available.
