I have a Windows 7 basic OEM installed on my system and I am looking forward to an upgrade. Ive seen the upgrade packs but I think I'd rather but a Windows 7 Ultimate and have the 64bit version.

Since the packaging for my OEM software contained one Windows 7 DVD, I have no idea what to expect in a non-OEM package.

And first of my concerns is (based on what I've heard) Do 64bit and 32bit versions come in separate packages like in XP?

And how will I know if the package is Authentic? Ive seen a guide for Vista but none for Windows 7 so far

If you buy Full version, you get both.
Otherwise it works the same as OEM. Shove the disk in and follow the on-screen instructions.
