You cannot do an in place upgrade from x86 Vista to x64. You can use an x64
upgrade product key but it will only do a custom install. The installation
is started by booting the Vista x64 DVD. It sees the installed OS is valid
as a qualifying OS for the upgrade, then will do a custom install. Of
course you have to have a copy of x64 Vista. That you would have to get
from the computer vendor or purchase a copy.
