How easy is it to change from Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit to the 64 bit version?

My Acer 5920G is apparently capable of 64 bit and I have the official Upgrade package which has both 32/64 bit discs.

The Microsoft W7 Update Advisor tells me I am okaay but need to do a manual install. Thanx.

You can not upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit Windows 7. You must perform a clean (custom) install. Just boot directly from the 64-bit installation DVD. Have fun!

It would also probably be a good idea to back up any important file before installing 64 bit.
