Vista 32-bit to 64-bit helps!

then!... suite to a thread should I understand that as long as you have a 32 bit retail key you can go to 64-bit without paying again? So then what happens if I have an upgrade (bought the windows upgrade cd) from xp to vista... but I need to go to vista 64... the same sentiments apply?... being what it seems I have to do an installation clean vs an upgrade

You do upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit operating systems.

'S done it with a clean install, using a Vista FULL 64 bit version/license.

And legally, you can't do a clean install with a license upgrade anyway

See you soon.

    That's why we're always checking the availability of compatible devices
    newest & brightest exploitation
    System. Only Dell (or one that makes the printer for Dell
    before it's new wording) can provide the necessary drivers. This is not a
    Problem of Windows 7.

  • Help to perform a new installation of Windows Vista 64-bit.

    Original title: Clean Install.

    I am wanting to perform a clean installation of Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit.  I would like to install Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit.  I was told, during the custom Setup, that I could choose which bit to install.


    With Vista, you do not boot from an external drive to install it.

    It is an option in Windows 7.

    And they told you to contact Microsoft for support.

    Microsoft does not provide support for OEM installations.

    In Vista, 32 bit and 64 bit come on different DVDs.

    Even on Windows 64-bit, Firefox is a 32-bit application, then your data will be used. It is easier if the version is the same on both (for example, Firefox 3.6 to 3.6, Firefox 5 to 5).
