Short answer, you can't.

You will need 32-bit drivers if you plan on using Windows 7 32-bit. Your best bet would be to install the Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

If you have an Ultimate key you can probably download W7 Ult 64-bit and just use that key.

But no matter whether you decide to install the 32 or 64-bit ultimate it will require you to do a brand new custom install. The only way to not do a custom install is if you would have bought the Anytime Upgrade from starter to Ultimate.

But since you bought an actual Ultimate license your best choice is to run Windows easy Transfer to back up all your userids, settings, and data; then do a fresh install of ultimate, then restore the Windows Easy Transfer back-up and finally reinstall all your software.
