    Most cases the reason for that is because the processor is not x64. This is why you make sure to do the research before you buy ;)

    It is a simple mistake that can be done by anyone, though. The only down side is that most places will not take os's back once they are bought. At least around here anyhow. I'm not sure about where you live.
