    Windows 8 Product key for x86 and x64


    Sorry if this a duplicated post but this is my first posting,

    I currently testing Windows 8 on my main PC using a 90 day trial and I was curious to know whether the product key you get using the upgrade offer is usuable for both X86 and X64 like with previous versions of Windows.

    I upgraded mine from the RTM version which had no serial, so I guess it should work!

    I am talking about the product key you purchase from Microsoft for Windows 8 is it good for X86 and X64 or for 1 type?
