upgrading from 32bit Vista Home Premium to 64bit
What does it take to do this? I bought a new Asus M70Vm-C1 and they put a 32-bit version of Home Premium on the machine,idiots, with a T9400 Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor and of course it can't address the full 4GB on it, which I would like to do. I have an HP Presario with Home Premium 64, wish I could use the recovery disc to install it on my Asus.

Vista Home Premium as all versions of Vista recognize up to 8gbs of ram. Home Premium is not the culprit, my guess is that is your mother board.

So you are saying both the 32 bit and 64 bit Vista can address the full 4 GB of RAM. Interesting, that's not what Microsoft says. They say only their 64 bit can do this, not the 32 bit version.

I know this is a late reply.
No, 32-bit versions of Vista cannot handle the full 4gb of memory, no 32-bit system can. The norm is about 3.25 - 3.75gb ...
I have Vista 32-bit and mine recognizes the 4gb is there but will only allocate 3.75gb of the 4.0gb. This is not because of shared VRAM as mine is dedicated.
My roommate who has almost the exact same laptop just a different brand only allocates at 3.5gb.
A 64-bit version, depending on the version of Vista you get can handle 8gb - 128gb. In theory though, 64-bit systems can use 18exabytes of RAM, because 2^64 = 18.446.744.073.709.551.616
