    Hope Im posting this in the correct section pardon me if I'm not, I have a quick question about installs.

    So say I'm migrating from a 32-bit Vista OS to a 64-bit Windows 7 OS this would be a custom install, BUT what if I'm going from a 32-bit version of Windows 7 Windows Home Premium to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium? would this be a simple upgrade or a custom installation? or do I have my wires completely crossed?

    Many Thanks

    You can't upgrade from 32bit to 64bit, it has to be a fresh install. or migration.
