    I got Windows XP x64 but dont wish to use it at this time. Can I install
    WindowsXP 32-bit and use the product key I have with the x64 edition? Both
    are Professional Editions.

    Thanks

  3. Hello,
    No, the product keys are unique per platform. So the x64 product key will
    not work with 32-bit Windows XP Professional
    Thanks,
