No you cannot. They are built on different architectures. You will need to do a fresh install. Make sure that your computer hardware is 64bit compatible.

True. When I am faced with such a situation, I get myself a new hard drive and build the new system on a new drive. When the system has been largely built, I can put the original drive in a carrier and get the data from it.

In the meantime (for the labour of changing a drive) I can use the old system.
