Re: Vista Home Premium Upgrade
One cannot "upgrade" a 32-bit O/S to a 64-bit O/S.
You would need to purchase a 64-bit version of Vista
and perform a complete clean install which requires reformatting
the hard drive.

Re: Vista Home Premium Upgrade
Also make sure that you're computer can handle a 64-bit operating system.
You'll need a dual core proccessor such as a amd 64 X2 or a intel dual core
processor.

Re: Vista Home Premium Upgrade
Check with the OEM or your supplier. In some cases, you can change to Vista
64 at no or reasonable additional cost.
Are you sure that you can obtain drivers for Vista 64?
How about application compatability?
Remember to backup before you change.
