can you upgrade Vista Home Premium from a 32 to 64bit??

  1. I was wondering if this can be done without having to buy a completely new 64
    bit version of Vista?

    If your 32 bit Home Premium was either a full retail or retail upgrade,
    there should be information in the box on the procedure for ordering the 64
    bit DVD. You only pay a small shipping fee.

    If it came preinstalled on a new computer, there is no such option. Any
    retail box only contains the 32 bit DVD, apart from Ultimate, so you would
    still have to send off for the 64 bit Home Premium, although you may be
    able to purchase a 64 bit generic OEM version from a local reseller.

    There is no direct upgrade from any 32 bit operating system to a 64 bit one.
    You would have to clean install.
