Does Microsoft allow you to download a Vista 64 bit ISO?

Microsoft will send you a DVD free of charge if you own the 32 bit version (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsvista/editions/64bit.mspx) but is there any place Microsoft will let you just download and burn it yourself?

    Do you have a retail disc? I was under the impression that the retail discs contained both 32 and 64 bit editions on the same disc...

    Unfortunately I don't believe you can download that ISO unless you're an MSDN subscriber.

    Only the Ultimate edition contains both the 32 bit and 64 bit media on the disk unfortunately.

    no, the only place they make .iso's of full versions of their software is through their MSDN. If you don't have MSDN, you're out of luck.

    Honestly, just get the free CD. It's an official MS printed CD, it's worth the price.

    It's a time constraint thing, I can't wait for a CD. I'll have to see if any of my friends have an Ultimate disk.

    Is there any way to do the reverse of this? I bought the 64 bit version of Vista Home Premium and after about 2 months of using it I wish I had gotten the plain old 32 bit version

    32bit and 64bit versions are not on the same disc.

    Also I am now using 64 bit with out an issue.
