Windows 7: Install Windows 7201 x64 from within Windows Vista x86

08 Jun 2009   #11

Windows 7 64bit Ultimate Build 7268.0.090701-1900

glad this worked out for you :)

Re-iterating here, there is no way to perform an upgrade from an x86 OS to a 64 bit one. Period.

although, once you go 64, you can just always upgrade to the newer builds, staying within the same architecture. I like to upgrade whenever possible, makes me feel like im sitting in a new OS everytime :)
