    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    If the OEM pack has not been activated previously yes the 64bit version is the way to go. Maybe when registered normally tied to one machine.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Applications - Utilities - Boot Camp Assistant

    Open it up - click on the 'Print Installation & Setup Guide' button.
    Print it out - read through it - it's easy and fairly short.

    Just a few pages in, it will list the versions of Windows that your version of Boot Camp Assistant will work with.

    While it won't list it - if it lists the version of windows you have, the system builders version will work.
    Am "assuming' this is not a branded Dell, HP, etc., disc.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
