How Can I Overwrite Drive With Win 7 32 Bit To 64 Bit ?

I've got a single hard drive with WIN 7 32 bit RC operating OK.

I want to replace it with WIN 7 64 bit RC (not dual boot).

I inserted the 64 bit DVD WIN 7 install ISO disk in my DVD and either it will boot me into by 32 bit system or gives me options to repair it. But, no options to overwrite the current OS.

If I fully boot into the 32 bit edition and try to open setup.exe on the 64 bit DVD it sees a 32 bit system and will not open the 64 bit install program.

How can install the 64 bit OS over the current 64 bit OS?

Connecting A 64 Bit Computer To A 32 Bit Printer & Network Drive
I have found the reverse but have yet to find this exact problem. My computer, running Windows 7 64 bit, will recognize the printer but won't let it connect to the printer. The network drive is not even seen. Both the printer and the network drive is hosted on a computer using Windows XP 32 bit.

32 Bit Hard Drive With 64 Bit Software - Windows Has Screw Up?
I have a 32 bit hard drive with 32 bit security software. Came with this new computer, HP presario CQ56 ( a terrible computer).I had windows auto upgrates turned off. When I downloaded so called security up grades, windows turned on the auto down loads.Now when I try to run the security software, I only get a popup stating I'm trying to run a 32 bit software on a 64 bit hard drive.Windows has screw up the system with their down loads before I realized what was going on.Windows refuse to answer any of my e-mails about anything.

Can't reboot because of too much computer jargin and not enough info.

Can't fully understand it all and it dam sure isn't automaticly completed.

Outlook Express Mail 32-bit Won't Show On Windows 7 64-bit?
I exported my 32 bit outlook express folder (with .dbx files) from my old desktop (xp pro) to my flash drive and copied the folder to the desktop of my laptop (windows 7 64bit). I then imported the contents of the outlook express folder from my win7 desktop to my windows live mail, the folders/files copied across into win livemail.My problem is that I cannot see these mail files on windows live mail, even though they copy accross they are not viewable.I have been at this for a week now, done a zillion searches to alleviate this problem to no avail.very frustrating.I have noticed that heaps of others are having the same prob. Its a shame Microsoft doesn't get off there butts and do a fix.

MSInfo32 Not Showing 32 Bit Modules When Run On A 64 Bit Version Of Windows 7?
I run a number of 32 bit applications on my Windows 7 box. (I have two of them. A 32 bit version and a 64 bit version).When I run MSInfo32 on my 64 bit Windows 7 box, it does not show any of the 32 bit models that are indeed loaded into memory.But they all show up on my 32 bit version of Windows 7.Is there a setting or something that I have to enable in order to "see" all of the loaded modules ?

Upgrading To 64-bit Windows 7 Pro From 32-bit Vista Home Premium?
Admittedly I feel a little late to the party with Windows 7 (what with 8 being on the horizon) but after several years (!) of plugging away with Vista Home Premium on my laptop (used every day for work), I'm at the point where I need to update it.Don't have the money to replace it outright, and it's also recently had a new HDD and RAM upgrade, so I'm exploring the possibility of finally upgrading to Win 7 (particularly seeing as mainstream support of Vista has now finished).From what I understand, a clean install of Win 7 is probably better than an update over Vista (and I am happy to do a clean install as I have all programs and everything backed up), but the one thing I am unsure of is whether I can jump to 64-bit Win 7 Professional with the hardware specs of my machine.The laptop is an Acer 5103WLMi with the following spec (from System Information): [code] The Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor report seems to indicate that upgrading to 64-bit is possible on a custom install, but the IT tech I spoke to at work says that because System Information lists the System Type as 'X86-based PC' that it can only use a 32-bit version of Windows.

Possible To Install A 32 Bit Windows 7 Pro Upgrade On Home Premium 64 Bit
can we install the 32 bit version from the Professional upgrade in place of the 64 bit Home Premium with comes preinstalled? I would do this from the very beginning, so we wouldn't have installed any of our software yet, I don't think there is any bloatware form Dell that we will want. I will make the recovery copies of the 64 bit OS first, and then hopefully upgrade to the 32 bit Professional. Things are "tight", and hopefully will not have to purchase a full version of Professional.

System Shows 64 Bit On Windows 7 Pro And 32 Bit On Vista After Upgrade
I had windows vista 32 bit earlier. Then I got windows 7 professional upgrade in trial period. I didn't notice how it happened. Of course it must be my mistake. Now when i boot from windows 7 it shows 64 bit and in vista it shows 32 bit. The system asks before booting which one to choose. It's today only that I have installed but I am not facing any problem as such except that i need a product key within 30 days. Should i leave as it is or uninstall vista somehow. Would i be able to reboot my system using the 32 bit vista CD?

External Harddrive Worked In 32 Bit Windows 7, Not 64 Bit After Uprade?
I'm new to this. I was working with Windows 7 32 bit and recently decided to take advantage of more RAM for recording music by upgrading to Windows 7 64 bit. However, after the upgrade installation my WD MyBook Studio II 2tb is no longer recognized in "My Computer" when I hook it through firewire OR USB (Yet all other devices work as they should) - So I've been to Disk Management and it shows up as a disk. However, there is still no letter assigned to it. When I right click on it, the only option is to delete volume. As you can see in this picture it shows up as disk 2 with three separate regions.

Now, when I hook it up to a MacBook running Leopard the WD MyBook Studio II works just fine and all of the files are accessible. I've also tried uninstalling the drivers, powering down and reconnecting, updating drivers. I've also switched my firewire controllers to (Legacy) in Device Manager. I still am not able to access my external drive within Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium - YET it worked great with 32 bit.

I can't remember if I disconnected the external drive from the computer when I upgraded Windows, but would that potentially have affected the install? How do I get access to my external drive if it won't show up in "My Computer" when it shows up perfectly fine on the MacBook running Leopard? Right now I'm using just less than half of the drive at around 800 GB and it's made up of two separate 1tb drives. I'm completely lost. Does anyone know a solution to my problem?Also: Windows lists my specific external drive as compatible with Windows 7 64 bit.

How To Dual Boot Windows 7 64-bit With Existing Vista 32-bit
I have an HP quad core machine with OEM Vista Home Premium 32-bit installed. It has never been connected to the internet (only my home network) since I have only used it for video editing and a few other particular tasks that do not require internet access. My thinking was that by keeping it "virgin" I would maintain fast boot times and that out-of-the-box snappiness. Set it up with several specific types of software, remove everything that isn't important (like AV software), and only install things via USB when necessary. For three years I've succeeded and the box is as fast as the day I set it up. It sits sequestered in its tower still wearing its chastity belt, oblivious to the evils of the outside world.

Unfortunately my main online machine (Vista 64-bit) just suffered the indignity of a failed motherboard. It's not worth repairing. Luckily the hard drive is intact. Here is my plan of action. I'd like to know if it makes sense, if it's doable, and, if so, the best way to go about it.

I'd like to set up a dual boot system. A year ago I purchased a full Windows 7 installation using the student discount available at the time. My virgin machine is capable of handling Windows 7 64-bit, so I'd like to install that (have already downloaded the ISO and burned it to a dvd). What I want to do is throw in an entirely new hard drive and install Windows 7 64-bit on it. I would then leave the Vista 32-bit existing installation intact and untouched. I would end up with three SATA drives in the HP tower -- 1) main drive with the existing, virgin OEM Vista 32 installation, 2) brand-new drive on which I would install Windows 7 64-bit, 3) drive I pulled from my dead Vista 64-bit machine, including lots of data and settings.

I would gradually set up the Windows 7 to mirror what I was doing on the machine that just died (I still have access to all of the important settings I need on the hard drive). When I want to do my regular stuff on the net I'll use the new Windows 7 64-bit installation. When I want to do the video and photo stuff I've been doing the last three years I'll boot to the virgin Vista installation (maybe even unplugging from the net while doing so).

So, can I do this? Will I maintain the snappiness of my current setup by making sure that when I boot to the existing Vista 32 install that I stay offline? If all answers are yes, how do I do it? For example, do I just install a new hard drive and then tell the machine to boot to the dvd drive and then install Windows 7 to that new drive from there? If so, how does the dual boot part of it go (or is it automatic and I'll be asked each time I turn on the machine?)

Upgrading 32 Bit To 64 Bit Windows 7 And CD Won't Execute?
Im trying to upgrade my 32 bit home premium to 64 bit professional. I bought the new key from the student website and downloaded the files and extracted them. Then i burned those files onto a DVD and restarted my computer and modified the BIOS to have the first start priority to be the rom drive. The problem is that it seems nothing is executing when the CD is executed and it just goes right to the currently installed OS. I used the standard windows burner, is there something i need to click to make the CD executable?

Difference In The Files For 32-bit Versus 64-bit Apps And OS?
I have read about the differences in 32-bit vs 64-bit apps and OS.But is there any differences in the files that a 64-bit and and 32-bit app runs? Is there such thing as a 32-bit file and a 64-bit file?For example can I create a wmv file in a 64-bit app and OS and then run this file in a 32-bit Window Media Player?Does the ability to take advantage of more than 4GB of RAM only sits with the app and OS or does it also depend on the file that the app runs?
