Upgrading to 64bit W7

I am currently using 32bit Windows. I want to upgrade to 64bit. Can I restore my programs/files if I use a backup image?

Dear jeopardy

I have never done what you are trying to do myself before , my Fujitsu LH530 ships with OEM Windows 7 64bit and is there a reason in particular you are presently running 32 bit Windows instead of 64 bit should your hardware actually support it, where I am coming from I guess is that even though here and here suggests that people have done it before my impression of upgrading Windows from 32 bit to 64 bit requires a clean format and reinstall in which case you probably require all your programs reinstalled from their setup files since the Windows registry is being wiped out anyway..

Re: Upgrading to 64bit W7

The 32 bits and 64 bits actually relates to the hardware system. This means that if your old hardware is running at 32 bits, currently using a 32-bit windows, you cannot use 64-bit windows.

However, if your hardware is made a 64-bit system, you can install 32 or 64-bit windows.
Most programs (32-bit) are compatible with 64-bit systems now, so it is of not much issue now. However some drivers may have issues.

Re: Upgrading to 64bit W7

^no idea what he talking abt


image backup is basically copying the entire harddisk data and compress into a image file...
u cant restore program only...it will restore the whole system and thats include windows

ur only option is to reinstall



the diff of x64 and x84 is the memory support...if ur memory is not exceeding 4gb, no point upgrading it
