You can use an OEM install disc to install 64-bit Windows and use the included Windows Key on the sticker attached to your PC.  You can find the drivers for your PC here: http://support.hp.com/ca-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Pavilion-Slimline-s5700-Desktop-PC-series/5035352...

 

Your Product Specifications show that the unit shipped with Windows 7 64-bit, did you wipe that out to put on the 32-bit installation?

 

Is there a specific reason you're wanting to change the system from what it currently is?

Thank you for your reply. I installed 32 bit by mistake after loosing the password for the PC. This disk is labeled

"Upgrade, includes Service Pack 1, 32 bit software, includes windows anytime Upgrade, Windows 7 Home Premium  DVD."

 

  However, I have the 64 bit disk also. It is labeled "Upgrade, includes Service Pack 1, 64 bit software,  includes windows anytime Upgrade, Windows 7 Home Premium  DVD."

 

Are these the same installation OEM disks you refer to? Can  I install from CD now and use the 64?

Yes, you can install using the 64-bit disk and you should be good to go.  You'll need to format the existing Windows partition and then download+install the drivers from this website once you're up-and-running again.

Thanks again. Last time I installed the 32 bit disk,there were three possibilities to do so.

I choose to install in "Disk 0  Partision 2: OS". There also were two others. Did I choose the right one? Could you tell me the meaning of this and where I have to go to find more information.
