Questions about installing with upgrade disc

I bought Windows 7 pro back when you could pre-order it for cheap and I am confused on how I am going to get mine installed. I am running Vista Home 32bit on my 160GB HD and I want to install 64bit win7 on my new 500GB HD but can I clean install 64bit Pro version on my 500GB

Hopefully with the way Microsoft has been talking up the 64 bit versions for Windows 7 and considering the number of 32 bit systems in use i would assume, (hope), that this upgrade route has been catered for.

Of course we will not know for sure until the actual upgrade disks are available to test the various scenarios
