Check out this post (http://www.intelliadmin.com/blog/2008/02/upgrade-paths-available-for-windows.html); note the second part of point #1: "Cross-platform upgrades are not supported (Ex: x64 to x86 or x86 to x64)"

So you'd have to do a fresh install.  Also, and this may be obvious but better safe than sorry, you need to be sure you've got a 64-bit processor in the box.
