Vista Home Premium 32 bit upgrade to Windows 7 x64
Ok here is the problem I have. I have a laptop with vista home premium 32 bit.. (OEM)..No install disk But can make one.I was going to install it on pc. I have ordered an upgrade disk for windows 7 x64 professional.. I was wanting to put it on my pc. It is running Windows 7600-16384 at the moment. From what I see it seems I won't be able to upgrade because:
1. Vista home premium to Windows professional won't work.
2. You can't upgrade with windows 7600-16384 to RTM
3. Not sure about going from 32 bit to 64 bit.
I am correct in my thinking??? If so I may have to cancel my upgrade buy from Newegg..Or change it somehow.
Would I be able to do clean install (RTM) on the pc with 7600-16384 on there????

Hi buckman, welcome to the forums.
Firstly, the upgrade paths have been set out HERE
Secondly if your hardware is x64 compatible then there's no reason not to install x64. You will, however, need to 'clean' install as upgrades from x86 to x64 do not work.
Hope this helps in some way
