is it possible to upgrade from x86 vista ultimate to x64 w7 ultimate?

my hardware does support x64 software

and if its NOT possible.. plz tell me why
From what I understand a 32 bit OS can't be upgraded to 64 bit. You would have to do a fresh install. By the very nature of how the OS is put together won't allow x86 to become x64. If you want x64, you'll need to start fresh.
