Vista HP 32bit upgrade to Win7 Professional 64bit RRS feed

  • שאלה

  • I am currently running Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit and am looking to upgrade to Windows 7 Professional 64bit with an UPGRADE disk. Is this possible or do I need to buy the full version and then wipe the hard drive and basically start all over again?

    Thanks

    Hi

    You can use the 64-bit upgrade disk, but you will be required to back up all of your important files, perform a Custom (clean) install, and reinstall all of the software programs.

    It's not possible to switch from 32-bit to 64-bit without performing a clean install.

    Upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 (custom installation)

    Hope this helps,

    Thank You for using Windows 7
