  • You can't perform a cross-architecture in-place upgrade.
    Going from a Vista 64bit installation to a Windows 7 32bit installation requires a clean installation.
      
    You can however buy a Windows 7 upgrade license when your Windows Vista license is valid and you can upgrade your Windows Vista 64bit to Windows 7 64bit.
