    Need help with Windows 7 re-installation, please

    Ok, so, here's the story. A couple years ago I purchased a PC from eBay. This PC had Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit and came without the disc or key. I wish to upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit and have been informed that the key can be reused to activate a 64 bit version. I know the implications such as having to do a clean install. However, my issue is that I need to know for certain the re-installation will work.

    I have the key along with the OEM thing via the program Belarc Advisor and I have a link to download a Windows 7 64 bit .ISO (Along with a USB stick to put it on). If I uninstall my Windows 7, boot my PC up with that is there any guarantee that it will work? I'm worried that it won't work and I'll see in bold writing a massive "FUCK YOU" and I will have to go without my PC until such times as I can buy another copy of Windows 7.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    I'm pretty sure that you can use windows 7 without a key for a limited time, so if it would happen that they key you have is not valid you still have time to find a new one and keep using your computer.
