I've never heard of 64bit compatible ram or hdd.. thats simply not true..

It is true your processor and motherboard have to support 64bit.

thanks for the info rand 79 he wants to focus on spelling instead of facts. i just dont understand the concept of selling computers with 64 bit cpu's and they cant use 64 bit operating system because the layout is 32 bit. every where i look it says i have 32 bit Architecture but amd 64 athlon cpu

Uou! ram or hdd 64 bit compatible?! That's a new one. Upendra09...could you please tell me what is the difference between a 32 and 64 bit ram or hdd? Thanks.

Like someguy7 said, what exactly is the problem when you try to install the 64 bit version?

You should have no problem doing a fresh install of Windows 7 64bit, if your trying to do an upgrade right now from 32-64 that is impossible. You can only upgrade 32-32 and 64-64.
