can I install 7rc 64 bit over vista 32 bit?

want to FINALLY go 64 bit (tried VHP64bit, but had to go to 32).

Can I 'upgrade' VHP 32 bit to Win7 64 bit?

If not, can I install Win7 64 bit on my 1st physical drive which is currently XP (dual boot)??? Might need to start fresh thread re: that scenario.

Nope sorry VHP to win 7 32 yes but not 32>>>64. You can install win 7 64 in a seperate partiton but it will not be an upgrade.

Hope this helps
