Hi i wonder is this possible. I'm now using Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit and i have 4 gb ram but i cant use it because my os is 32bit. I want to upgrade it to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with same product key. Can i do this?

Sorry for my bad English.

You will need to do a clean install, but yes, you can use the same key..

None at all.. you will find a windows.old file in the c:/ directory that you can safely delete and you will be good to go...

It means my files, programs and settings will stay in computer and i can use my computer like the old system but 64 bit?
I want to be very sure because there are my very important files in harddisk.

If you have a problem using online activation use the phone method and you will get it activated.
