Did you buy a Vista machine and then install Windows 7? How did you get Windows 7 32 Bit?

Think I'd call Best Buy and see what can be done.

You're not in trouble. You can install the 64 bit version without reverting to Vista.

(The 32 bit install will qualify an upgrade version of Win7. You'll have to boot from the DVD and do a clean install.)

Chances are that your system has a restore partition that will let you do the entire process again, and make the right choice. No phone call should be needed. Boot the machine and look for "Recovery" options. You'll want to restore back to factory defaults.
