    Greetings:

    My PC is a 64 bit (Intel dual core E2200) system. After ugrading from XP pro sp3 to WIN 7 home pre using a family pack edition. It shows that its a 32 bit OS under Computer Properties. How can I install the upgrade using the 64 bit OS?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't think you can upfrade form 32 to 64. Also XP shouldn't really upgrade to win 7 either except for settings
