  2. No, there is no upgrade path from a 32-bit OS to a 64-bit OS. You have to do
    a clean install.

  3. No upgrade is possible, it has to be a clean install. It should NOT be
    installed on to the same partition as the existing XP without formatting the
    partition.

    use the Files and settings transfer wizard to move your current settings to
    the new install.
