how to upgrade from 32bit to 64bit

hello all

i just bought a toshiba laptop which came pre-installed with windows home premium 64bit but the recovery cd that came with the laptop is only 32bit. when i re-installed the windows with the 32bit version it only installed with 32 bit( which is obvious since its a 32bit CD) but now how do i upgrade it to 64bit.

thanks

You can only do a clean install from 32-bit to 64-bit.

You need a 64 bit Windows 7 disk. You might go to the place you purchased it and see what they tell you.

Sorry, my Tutorial did not apply to what you needed. Your best bet might be to contact Toshiba. Good Luck.
