A couple things jump out at me here -- Is the 64-bit system a brand new
purchased copy of Vista, or a copy that you purchased at some point in
the past and just switched from 32-bit to 64-bit?
You need to be aware that you only have one licensed copy of Vista, and
can use it in either 32-bit or 64-bit mode, but only on one PC, and as a
result the support policy is based on the original installation,
switching from 32-bit to 64-bit or back again doesn't reset your license
or support agreement.
