Thread: I am trying to go from 32 bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7.

    I am trying to go from 32 bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7.

    I am trying to go from 32 bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7.

    The 32 bit Vista was installed by mistake. My system can handle a 64 bit OS. Now I have finally found the time to upgrade. But the 64 bit intallation DVD can't be read from my OS. Any Advice?

    Do I need to boot from that DVD drive? Will that work?
