I upgraded Windows 7 from my Vista 64.
My mistake was I used the 32 bit and not the 64 bit.
How do I upgrade back to the 64 bit?

Hi murdockbrinkley! Welcome to the Windows 7 Forums! :ciao:

1. Do you have both discs, 32 bit and 64 bit?

2. I'm a little confused because you said "I upgraded Windows 7 from my Vista 64".
So you must have done a clean or custom install to do it, you couldn't have done an
upgrade install from 64 bit to 32 bit.

3. You'll have to do another clean or custom install of the x64 Windows 7. It won't let you
upgrade from a 32 bit to a 64 bit OS.
