I just received recovery DVD's for a CF31.
I explored the disks before I installed them. They do have Win7 32bit and 64 bit on them.
The unit I recovered had 8gb ram. When it was done, I checked and it auto installed 64bit.
Can I choose 32 or 64bit? If I can, Where and how?
It's a spare drive and caddy, so I will leave 64bit for now.
I did a mk1 a while ago and noticed the recovery DVD recreated the hidden recovery partition also.

The recovery image is for multiple models. 19, 31 and 53....

The way it worked on CF-S10 disk, after a recovery there was a utility to make your own Recovery DVD set. That is where you could pick either 32 or 64 bit. The utility said you could only run it once, but resetting a bit in the Win registry enabled it again.

So if I want 32 bit, I need to make a new recovery disk and re-recover the system.
Hmm. Interesting setup.
