AFAIK No. You will have to format and do it again.

AFAIK you will have to get a new key. But for more details about both your problems see/browse Microsoft Support site. There has to be something about them there.

You should use the same Product Key

On the 64 Bit as you did on the 32 Bit version. But you will have to read the EULA that you have got with the Upgrade Disc Set.

Depending on where you live in the world and other things like that you should be able to use the same Product key but you will have to first uninstall the 32 Bit Version before installing the 64 Bit Version.

Upgrading from 32bit to 64bit...

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to can I upgrade from 32bit ...

Yes you can upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit.
But, you will have to save ALL of your (32 bit) data (doc's, music etc) first before changing to the 64 bit route.
Because you can only have ONE system running under the same (product) system key, either the 32 or 64 bit version, you can not have BOTH running, unless you have different (product) system keys.
Also, you will have to do a FULL (complete) install for the 64 bit version.
So, BACKUP first. :)
