Hello,

I understood your problem. You are going to upgrade the windows 7 32 bit operating system in to windows 7 64 bit operating system without formatting the machine. This operation is not successful since the setup is run on the 32 bit operating system. It is totally incompatible.

The thing is you have to do, in order to solve this problem is first backup your all data which store on the C: drive. Then you have to format the machine. Only C: drive is enough. Use the new 64 bit version windows 7 CD to format the machine when the setup is running.

Hi there,

Before you begin to install a new OS, you must to back up first your documents and media to a clean hard drive. The safest, easiest way to do this is to buy a new hard disk and replace your old one. Now let’s start the installation.

First drop the DVD in the tray, and restart your system, and then, you’ll be given the option to “Press any key to boot from CD/DVD, the windows will load files from the disk for a moment, then the installer will launch. Select your language preferences, and then click Install Now. Accept the Windows license agreement and choose to do a Custom install. Now, select the system partition you want to install to.

If you’re installing over an old partition, it’s a good idea to format it to remove the remnants of the old OS before you install Win7. Once the install is complete, you’ll be asked for a user name and a computer name. Use a more creative name for your computer name, to make networking easier, and then you will be given the option to create a password for your account.

You’ll then be asked for your activation key, enter your activation key. Next, you’ll be prompted to choose Windows update settings; “Use recommended settings.” Set the clock and choose your time zone, and that’s it you’re ready now to start using your new system.

Hope this help.
