Default 64 bit.. Oi.

I got my Sata hard drive for my laptop. (old drive crapped out.) I was able to save my important files.

I installed Windows 7... Got it all set up, updated. programs installed and files transfered......
Then I seen it.....
Oi....

Windows 7 32 bit... I should have 64 bit....

From what I understand Win7 32 can't be upgraded to 64. A reinstal is needed.
So what should I do Re install or stick with 32 bit.

IMO, 64-bit is the way to go.

Everything I've ever seen and done indicates that the key doesn't care which bit-version you have so I'd stick with 64-bit.

If your computer has less than 4GB of RAM and cannot be upgraded to have more than 4GB of RAM, then the 32bit is fine.
