    Just got a Mac Mini 2014 and want to add Bootcamp to it. I'm going to be using a windows 7 on my partition, but the disk I have right now is 32 bit. I tried to use my google-fu but was unable to see whether or not I could use the 32 bit windows 7. As of now I am on my phone doing the whole Christmas family meet-up thing so I am unable to actually check if it works right now. Anyone know if it'll work or do I have to get a 64 bit disk?

    I think you can use the same key for either the 64-bit or 32-bit version of Windows so long as it is the same edition. All you need to do is download the Windows ISO from the Digital River site for your edition of Windows in the 64-bit version and use that to make a Boot Camp USB drive with which you activate using your current Windows activation key.

    Where did you get your disk?
    If you downloaded the Windows 7 .iso from Microsoft, then that will be whichever you chose when you downloaded the .iso ...

    The keys for Windows 7 are the same regardless of being 32 bit or 64 bit. As Intell stated simply download the appropriate .iso from Digital River and use it with the Boot Camp Assistant.
