  1. Nope, not without a clean install.
  2. +1 to anort3, you have to do a clean install.
  3. Agreed with the above as well. It is only possible to upgrade from 32-bit to 32-bit (ie: moving from Vista 32-bit to Windows 7 32-bit). It is not possible to do an in-place upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit or vice versa. Here are some resources to help you learn more about 32-bit and 64-bit so you can decide if the move is worth a clean installation - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/32-bit-and-64-bit-Windows-frequently-asked-questions and http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/taking-the-mystery-out-of-64-bit-windows

    Hope this helps!
