    I have windows 7 32 bit although would now like to put it on my mac pro and want to use Windows 7 64 bit although MS doesn't allow you to download it off their site anymore.

    Does anyone know any sites which have Windows 7 64bit where I can download from? I'm still able to get the Serial numbers from the MS site I just need a site to download the 64 bit version. Thanks

    Torrent it if you have the serial, it's legal.

    Or just wait for Microsoft to release the release candidate in May (yes it'll be free for all - until Windows 7 goes on store shelves, that is.)

    If you dont have the serial then you can use it in trial mode for 120 days by typing "slmgr -rearm" in command prompt at the end of each 30day run (it works 3 times, all it does is reset the timer, its not a hack). 120 days is longer than it will take for the next version to come out, just make sure to only type that at the end of each 30 day run to get the most amount of days.

    I believe the RC will be free to use until June 2010.
