You need to do a clean install!

Why should you???
A 64bit system is working with 32bit applications!
The 32bit doesn't work with 64bit apps!

There is no way to do that without wiping the system out and doing a fresh install.

If a friend has a 32 bit Windows disk (XP, Vista, or 7), you could set up a virtual machine with it (using a program like VMware Player) and run it during the trial to run the update for the phone. Once the update is complete, delete the VM.
