Installing windows 7 64 bit on 32 bit machine

Hello,
I did the same as this fellow. I have a fresh HD, mad a partition on it, booted from the 64bit CD. It let me go through the entire process when it came time for the ssystem to reboot I received and error message "cant run the 64 bit windows 7 on a 32 bit system". I can not get passed it each time I boot I get the same thing

  1. you must have a CPU that supports 64 bit to use Windows 7 64 bit.

    to go from 32-bit to 64-bit Windows, you must perform a clean install. You can't simply "upgrade" from one to the other. Boot from the DVD and install fresh.
