Upgrade from 32bit vista to 64bit win7 possible?

I have a 64 bit windows 7 upgrade disc, and no Vista installation disk. I do have a valid cd-key that came with the 64bit Vista operating system. I was looking for a CD image to download since like all laptops they give you the crappy restore disk that add bundled software you don't want and take forever to load.

So to sum it all up, upgrade from 32 bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7 possible??

My Vista cd-key is for Vista Home Premium

If vista is still on your pc then you can clean install the upgrade 7 disk. The installer will see the old os and allow the clean install. Hope this helps you with your problem.

vpwin7... Glad it worked out for you. A nice clean install with no crapware is the only way to go. Enjoy!

Well, technically upgrading from a 32-bit system to a 64-bit system will not work. An upgrade would mean that you are keeping all of the installed applications and such and just changing the operating system. However, you can do a clean install...which you already know. Just posting that for others who might read this and think that upgrading, in the technical sense of the word, is possible.
