Does the Win7 install DVD contain all version?

saborbas
I am a field tech and I am constantly coming across end users who have never purchased or created the OS recovery disk or have just lost them. After reading how to create a Win7 USB install flash, I was wondering if the Win7 install DVD contain all version? I've read somewhere that it does but I've never been able to confim this. How about 32/64bit, OEM/Non OEM. I realize that the oem drivers aren't on all install DVDs but it would save me a lot of trouble always trying to find DVDs

    Hi

    the Retail DVD does hoave all versions 32 and 64 bit, depending on the product key you have , that will only unlock the assicated windows versiont on the DVD.

    the OEM versions ddo not contain all versions

    The Install DVD has all Versions which is activated by the Product key however they only have a 32 Bit or a 64 Bit Install Disc. Both versions are not on the same DVD.

    With the retail Version you get 2 install Disc's one 32 Bit the other 64 Bit.

    As for Volume License and so on no these are on different DVD's. So if you want all versions of 7 you need 2 X Retail Install Disc's, 2 X Volume License Disc's and 2 X OEM Install Disc's.

    As far as Home and Ultimate they are on the 1 Install Disc.
