Hello,
I am a little more than novice. I bought a HPTC from okoro Media syst. They went out of busness. I am running Vista Ultimate 32, I am having problems with Memory and hanging up. I want to add 3gig af ram, Win 7 64. Every thing I have read says 64 bit is the way to go. I bought a Win 7 Ultimate it talks about from XP not vista, did I get the wrong one?

No it works fine. Just note you cannot install windows 7 64bit just by inserting the dvd into the drive and running it in vista. Since you are going from 32-> 64 bit you have to do a "custom" install, so backup anything and everything that might be of value.

This is correct (+1). Put another way, you can't upgrade from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version. You must perform a "clean" or "custom" install.

Boot from the DVD and proceed with the custom option. Pretty easy from their.

Good luck!
