I am currently running Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit (OEM version) on my computer. However, I would like to be running 64 Bit Windows 7 as my friend recently purchased x64 OEM 7 Professional for himself, and reported that compatibility is not as big a problem anymore (the reason I decided against x64 at the time of me buying). My question is, am I able to use his 64 Bit installation disc, install that onto my computer, and activate with my current 32 Bit product key? Do I possibly need to "unactivate" my 32 bit installation first, or something of the sort?

OK, in that case I should do a clean (custom) install, installing on my current Windows 7 x86 partition, and when it comes to inputting the product key and activation it should not have a problem? My concern is that it is the OEM edition of 7, and I am aware that the licensing terms are more restrictive than the retail versions.
