Hello bronho, welcome to Seven Forums!
There is no upgrade path from 32-bit to 64-bit, it will have to be a clean install; after you have made backups of anything you want to save to external media from the Hard Disk Drive, the best way to proceede is to do a wipe (secure erase) of the entire HDD; have a look at these tutorials at the links below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.
