Specs: Windows 7
I have an Acer Veriton X480G and have installed the default 32 bit win 7 but now have installed an SSD and I would like ot install 64 bit Win 7 on that.
How can I do it.
I have downloaded an ISO file of Win7 SP1 64 bit, but haven't a clue what to do with it!

✔ Best Answer
You can burn the iso to a dvd using something like magicISO or powerISO, or just google for a free iso burner, once you have done that, and assuming it is burnt as a bootable dvd you can put the dvd in your drive and restart the pc.

If you bios is set to boot from cd/dvd first it will ask you to press a key to boot from dvd, otherwise change your bios settings to make your dvd drive the first boot device.

Try this: i think it burns bootable dvds

Hi jimwarrilow,

Once you create a bootable DVD as mentioned by "AlwaysWillingToLearn", refer to the link mentioned below for instructions on installing Windows 7:

I suggest using ImgBurn to burn your ISO image file to a DVD:

"I would like ot install 64 bit Win 7"

Do you have at least 4GB RAM?

Is this a legal (paid) download? Do you have an installation key?

You can use the licence key that came with the computer, providing it relates to the same model of Windows 7 that you are trying to install.

So if the computer originally came with Windows 7 Home Premium you need an Windows 7 Home Premium ISO. You wont be able to install Windows 7 Professional with a Windows 7 Home Premium key.

The 32/64 bit difference doesn't matter.

Also note that unless you have 4GB (8GB better) or more of RAM, it does not pay to install the 64bit version since the 64bit version uses 1GB more of memory for the OS than the 32bit version does.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
