Upgrading Vista Ultimate 32-bit to 64-bit, need some clarification

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, thanks for the time in reading this thread/answering. Well as the title suggests, I am looking to upgrade my OS from Vista Ultimate 32-bit to 64-bit, I heard somewhere that you could upgrade for free or maybe a small fee because I already own the 32-bit version. If not how would I go about upgrading to 64-bit or would I need to go out and buy a version of 64-bit? thanks.

But note that you cannot upgrade from 32-Bit to x64 environment. You have to do a full format first.
