Sorry if in the wrong place
-- not sure where to post this here?
Is there a way to use a 32bit setup.exe to install a 64bit OS (win7 or 8.1)?
Currently have only a 32bit system and can't seam to get past this barrier.
I can install 32bit versions, so if there is an easy way to upgrade from 32bit to 64bit, then maybe that’s an option.
-- no DVD on this pc
-- no flash drive available (what I have is extremely slow and always gets errors)
-- do have space available on a USB HDD, but must protect other partitions ‘ data on this drive.
-- VMware Player won't let me do a real HDD install without keeping the reserved partition ' boot files in the VM.
-- I tried swapping the 32bit Setup.exe into the 64bit ISO, but no go.
