They say that my cpu or mb will not take the 64bit OEM over the 32bit


heres my situation. i had a pc from velocity micro- it came with an
version of xp 32 bit home. I bought the upgrade version of windows
home premium 32 bit. im at the point now where i realize that my 4gb
ram is not being used in my 32 bit environment. so i ordered the 64
alternative media disc from microsoft.

my question is how to install this 64 bit disc. will i have
problems? do i have to install vista twice? do i really have to
reinstall xp and will that cause problems?

thanks x64 community!
