When you boot from the win 7 dvd it will give you the option to format and install.
When i put in the 64-bit disc i get this message: http://i45.tinypic.com/2dqvk2g.png

You need to actually START the computer using this disc. Usually you can achieve this simply by restarting the computer with the disc in the drive. If you do that, you should get a message before Windows starts that says "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." When you see that message, press any key on your keyboard to boot from the Win 7 disc.

As has been stated numerous times on these Forums, the only way to go from 32-bit to 64-bit (or vice-versa) is by means of a clean install. This means restarting your system with the DVD in the drive and booting from it.
