Installing Windows 7 prof 64-bit over 32-bit
Posted on 2012-08-20
I want to move from 32-bit Windows 7 prof to 64-bit Win 7 prof. When I try to restart with the Win 7 64-bit DVD, the system just boots me into Windows. Here's what I've tried.
The DVD drive is selected in the bios as the 1st boot device
I press 'F8' and select the DVD drive to boot
I've used both a full version install disk and an upgrade disk with the same results
When I run the 64-bit installation program from Windows, I get the error that says the program isn't compatible with the operating system
Any ideas on how I can get the system to recognize the 64-bit DVD, I'd appreciate it.
