There'll be no problem from Microsoft.
However, I can't imagine how you'd expect this action to save you any
hard drive space, when, in fact, the results may be just the opposite.
For instance, the 64-bit OS has to maintain parallel "Programs" folders
for 64-bit and 32-bit applications, there will be both 32-bit and 64-bit
versions of Internet Explorer installed to maintain compatibility, etc.
Additionally, before making the change, take some time to verify that
all of the applications you use will work on the 64-bit OS; most will,
but check with the manufacturer of each to be sure. Even more
importantly, before proceeding, verify with the manufacturers of your
computer and all of your peripherals that 64-bit device drivers are
available to support all of your hardware devices.
