For the record, if you're talking about "system restore", I doubt you're in the clear just yet. There are quite a few bugs that infect restore points, for that very reason.

Re: Flash drive not working

If it doesn't show up again, check disk management in compmgmt.msc to see if it shows up there. May be a case of windows not assigning it a drive letter, for some odd reason.

You may have to load special drivers for the sata controller. Go on the internet, and download them to a flash drive. Then load the drivers from the flash drive, when you go to install.

Re: Win 7 versions?

If the processor was made in the last five or six years, chances are good that it's 64-bit. That said, you'd be foolish to not go with a 64-bit OS these days. Windows 7 will be the final flavor that will have a 32-bit version.
