Windows 7: Upgrading OEM version from 32 to 64bit

Upgrading OEM version from 32 to 64bit

I would like to make a clean install of win7. Using the 32bit version(I have the cd), doesn´t make sense anymore to me so I need the 64bit iso, but how do I get it?? Microsoft stopped this download service for consumers and Dell, from where I bought the computer&OS, has also nothing to do with it...
I would like later to upgrade to win10 64bit.
Does anybody have an idea how I can upgrade from win7 32 to win7 64 bit?

This should be based on whether you have 3gb or more RAM to run 64 bit smoothly. If so then it discusses how to find safe reinstallation media in Step 1 of Clean Reinstall Windows 7.
