    I created a Windows 7 AIO - And when I try to upgrade an HP with Vista 64 Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, it tells me I am trying to upgrade from a 32bit operating system to a 64bit and errors out.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    It was an HP computer with Vista 64bit home premium pre-installed. And the architecture says x64 in my list for Windows 7. The AIO is based off of the retail ultimate x86 DVD.

    Installing clean works perfectly fine.

    Upgrade with a x86bit-x64bit AIO will not work as the upgrade files for x64bit are not there on the DVD...those dvd's are based on X86bit versions...and as such only you can upgrade x86bit version with them...

    Got it, so what I can do is create a disc with double the files, and optimize the disc so it doesn't waste space. Then create an auto-run program that determines whether its 64bit or 32bit, and executes the proper setup. Is it the same way with bootup setup? Meaning I have to do the BCD trickery garbage.

    I think an easier method would be..
    1.Extract the x64bit iso into a folder.. "x64bit_upgrade"
    2.Delete "install.wim" and "ei.cfg" from the sources folder in the extracted folder...Than zip the rest of the extracted x64bit iso folder i.e, "x64bit_upgrade" folder
    3.Now put this upgrade folder on the AIO dvd using ultra iso..Or any such iso utilities..
    4.Whenever you want to use upgrade option..Just extract this upgrade folder onto the hard disk on a seperate partition...And than copy the install.wim from sources folder of the dvd into the sources folder of the "x64bit_upgrade" folder...And then start the setup from that folder..

    Well...He is already having an x86bit-x64bit AIO dvd..The problem is that he wants to use that dvd for upgrading 64bit system which you can't do as such AIO dvd's don't have upgrade files for x64bit versions on them

    Hi,
    I have downloaded the windows 7 x86 and x64 editions (MAY 2011) from the link provided by MDL. I was trying to make an AIO. But I'm stuck on the very first step!

    Steps I followed:
    1. Deleted ei.cfg file from the sources folder of x86 edition and mounted it using ultra iso. It worked fine, gave me all x86 editions. But when I burn it to a dvd then it does not BOOT.
    2. Then I again extracted the original x86 dvd to a folder and this time I deleted ei.cfg file and .clg files. Again mounted it.Gave me all editions but again it does not boot from a dvd.

    Please tell me what I'm doing wrong?o_O
