[Tutorial] Upgrading Windows 7 32-bit to 64-bit

#1
(This post was last modified: 06-23-2015, 03:22 PM by bustabaf. )

Good afternoon,

Please I need a thorough guide on how to successfully upgrade my system (Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit SP 1 to 64-biit)

Suffice to say is that I have checked my system properties and found out that it is compatible with 64-bit (image attached below).
I would like to upgrade my system to 64-bit as I feel it will make it smoother, faster and more operational.

The only issue is that I have read a couple of tutorials online about how to go about this, but I want a one-on-one tutorial so that I can be rest assured someone is watching my back as I am embarking on it.

Thank you for expected assistance.

Just get your 64 bit Windows 7 installation disk then follow the guide @ https://blog.hovatek.com/how-to-install-...em-cd-dvd/
the guide contains step by step pictures and even a video to make it much easier for you

Thanks

But my system is a mini laptop. It has no drive to play a CD.
I have somewhere online that the 64-bit iso file can be downloaded online and installed on the PC using a flash drive.

Is this safe?

Yes, and the tutorial i gave you explains exactly how to do that (creating bootable flash drives)

Thank you. Now I know better.

Also, please will I lose all my data on my PC if I upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit?
I mean, will my documents and file previously saved on my c: drive and other created drive still be intact?

Thank you.

Thank you.

so far you're upgrading from Windows 7 , they will be saved to the Windows.old folder (so far you dont use the format option)
see the video @ the guide, all these and more are explained

That's cool. Thanks!!!

Currently downloading the video tutorial. I will watch it once download complete.

By the way, if I get you right, upgrading to other OS like Windows 8 will erase my previous data on the PC....right?
