upgrade to 32bit now, 64 bit later?
I am running Windows XP Professional and recently bought the Home Premium
version of Vista. I have ordered the 64 bit DVD, which they well could take
up to 4 weeks to be delivered. My question is, can I upgrate to Vista 32bit
now, and when the 64bit DVD arrives, do a clean install to that operating
system? All on the same license (because its the same computer) ??
Thanks

You have a bigger problem than the 32 bit to 64 bit issue. I also ran XP
Pro. Unfortunately, Microsoft apparently forgot that some of us liked the
better control and security of an NT based system and opted for XP Pro at our
homes. You cannot upgrade XP Pro to Vista Home Premium. You will need to do
it as a new install.
