    Yep, enterprise excluded, the version via MSDN is determined by which key you put in. I like that, saves on have to store several ISO files.
    Yeah I like it a lot as well. I've since found I'm not the only one confused by this, but it was a good change on their part

    I upgraded successfully my W7 to W8 (64 bit -> 64 bit)
    yeah hash on the ISO matches up with what it shows on MSDN.. how would i verify that what was burned to the USB stick is 64?
    The x86 build is ~2GB, the x64 build is ~3GB.
