No, you cannot upgrade from 32 to 64 bit via any upgrade pathway.
It is reccomended that you do a clean fresh install onto a formatted HDD, when you do this you can install 64 bit or 32 bit but you cannot upgrade from 32 to 64.

thanks

Well, you are mostly right. You can upgrade from Vista-32 straight to Win7-32, no reformatting necessary. But upgradiny any Win-32 OS to any Win-64 OS requires a reformat.

Going from 64 bit to 32 bit also requires a clean install.
