    Glad to help... or should I say more accurately, try to help !

    I didn't notice you had only 2 GB of RAM, that makes it indeed useless to have a 32 bit OS, except for running 64 bit programs of course, but fortunately, as of today programs not available in 32 bit are a rarity.

    the win 8.1 that i have already that is an original dvd , but its in 64 bit - i cant use on the 32 bit system right.!
    If your PC came with a trial version = then you need to have a product key to activated it.. If you do not have a product key = you need to purchase one..

    The OS software is free - but you need a product key to activate it.. the product key does not care if x86 or x64 OS

    you can use your 64 key on your 32 pc - the key is the same for both
    but there are many different editions of windows 8 /8.1 and the key must match the edition (Pro, core, SL, bing, enterprise, et.)

    Hi again KYHI.
    Ok well I hope I can use it somehow.
    My pre-installed version is named win 8.1 Bing.
    And when I try to use the 64 key I get an notification i can't use this to activate this 32 bit version.
    But never mind I can always as you mentioned purchase a new correct one trough the system.

    But you already have a Windows license ! Something's wrong here, that's throwing money out of the window, you should check with the people who sold you this. They should give you a Win 8.1 Bing license key in replacement of the one given with the DVD, or install the same edition as the one on your DVD...

    Hi again NOVHAK..
    Well the whole problem was actually that it seems impossible to install my other Windows because I never got anything to boot up. and after KYHI's good advice I won't even bother to.
    And the licence key I got , doesn't work for the pre-installed win 8 32.
    And I can't change or get the money back , because it is bought earlier in another town and I already opened and tried to use it .. so that's it.
    Just put the rockboots on and yippee kaieyy .. buy the right key.

    You can run this on your system - to see what edition you have installed, the trial key and the embedded key, if any..

    What edition of windows 8.1 matches your DVD product key.. Core, Pro, Single langage?

    Click on control panel > system = what edition is listed as on that PC

    we can change the images - you do not want to use x64 on that PC

    your system has bing.. .your system does not have an embedded product key...

    do this for me - from a command prompt(admin) type one command at a time

    diskpart
    select disk 0
    list partition

    post a pic of cmd windows
