    Downloading Win 8 installation iso


    When I downloaded the Windows 8 iso from my Vista desktop, it defaulted to the 32 bit version, I guess because 32 bit is what is on the desktop. But I want a 64 bit iso. How do I specify that?

    Thanks

    Hello Vincenzo,

    Unfortunately, you can't specify which one you wanted. Instead you'll need to redownload the Windows8-Setup.exe file on a 64-bit PC to be able to get a 64-bit ISO.

    Hope this helps,

    It is not an iso that is downloaded.

    It is the installation files.

    You get the option to make an iso from them.
