free copy of 64 bit vista home or an upgrade disk or anything, I want to go
out and buy windows Ultimate 64 bit but is that the only version that is 64
bit?

Is your Windows Vista retail or OEM?

If OEM, contact the seller.
However they are unlikely to give you 64 bit.

If retail, you can order 64 bit:

One of the many reasons OEM costs less than retail.

Nick

If you purchased a retail version of Vista, you can get the 64Bit disk at
the following website. You only pay for the shipping. (Usually around 7 USD)

Windows Vista Alternate Media:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvist...a/default.mspx

All versions of Vista are available in 32bit or 64bit.

If this version of Vista came pre-installed on the computer, contact the
system vendor for options on getting the 64bit disk.

It is a OEM Version from HP

I actually ordered a tx1000z and it has home premium 32 bit on it, but I
have 4GB of memory and I need a 64 bit to see it all

Make sure you can get 64-bit drivers for your computer BEFORE you buy the
64-bit version. You may well find that hardware and software you own will
not work on 64-bit, so be prepared.
