Hi, im trying to upgrade my current windows 7 32bit setup to 64 bit.

I have tried booting from DVD and I keep getting the following error right before installation.



Have tried burning the ISO file at slow speed on IMGBURN and still won't work.

Help please!!!

  1. Windows is saying that it can't find a driver for your DVD drive(probably a 64-bit driver). Check the manufacturer's website to see if they supply a 64 bit driver. If not, you may have to get a new DVD drive.
  2. Hi

    I believe you will need to backup all data
    during install go to advanced and format C: destroying all data on C: before changing from 32 bit to 64 bit Windows

    It is not a simple upgrade like going from Vista to 7 (both 32 bit)

    Unless you have more than 3 GB of RAM (or want to add extra RAM) or are going from Home to Pro or Ultimate is the upgrade worth it.

    Legacy drivers for old equipment such as printers / scanners/ multifunction devices are harder to find for 64bit Windows 7 but Vista 32 bit drivers often work with 32bit Windows 7
