free copy of 64 bit vista home or an upgrade disk or anything, I want to go
out and buy windows Ultimate 64 bit but is that the only version that is 64
bit?

Re: 64 Bit
Is your Windows Vista retail or OEM?

If OEM, contact the seller.
However they are unlikely to give you 64 bit.

If retail, you can order 64 bit:

One of the many reasons OEM costs less than retail.

If you purchased a retail version of Vista, you can get the 64Bit disk at
the following website. You only pay for the shipping. (Usually around 7 USD)

Windows Vista Alternate Media:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvist...a/default.mspx

All versions of Vista are available in 32bit or 64bit.

If this version of Vista came pre-installed on the computer, contact the
system vendor for options on getting the 64bit disk.

RE: 64 Bit
It is a OEM Version from HP

I actually ordered a tx1000z and it has home premium 32 bit on it, but I
have 4GB of memory and I need a 64 bit to see it all

Re: 64 Bit
Make sure you can get 64-bit drivers for your computer BEFORE you buy the
64-bit version. You may well find that hardware and software you own will
not work on 64-bit, so be prepared.
