You have to perform a clean install... you can't upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit.

You need to boot from the 64-bit disk, not try to run it from within Windows. But back up your data first!

The same way you would boot from the 32-bit disc... put the disc in and boot the computer.

Make sure you have your DVD drive set to boot before your hard drive... or select your DVD drive from the boot menu. (Make sure the 64-bit disc is inserted, of course). It should boot and start Windows setup.
