Fresh install - there is no supported upgrade from 32 to 64 bit.

If you are tempted to try it make sure that you have 64bit drivers for all of your hardware first !

Have you got a 64 bit processor cause as far as I know you cannot use Windows XP 64 bit with a 32 bit processor and vice versa -> when you try to boot from theOS CD you will be informed of this.

So you have a motherboard that supports EM64T so you will also need a 64 bit processor and then the MS OS in 64 bit.
