Windows 7: Possible to upgrade from XP64 to W7 home?

Possible to upgrade from XP64 to W7 home?

I am running xp 64 and have an upgrade disc for windows 7 32bit home premium. I know from previous tries that xp 32 will not install over xp 64 without a complete format of the hard drive. I was just wondering if 7 32 bit has the same issue. I do also know that 7 upgrade discs will allow a clean install as long as a previous version of xp or vista is recognized. Just wondering if anyone has tried this or had any issues or success?
