  2. Hello Bad,

    You can not inplace upgrade a 32bit to a 64bit OS. This requires a reinstall.
    You can run both version together without problem.

    Best regards

  4. Hello Anand,

    That's is correct and supported. 32bit and 64bit work together without any
    problem. And 2003 at least with SP1 can be in place upgraded to 2008.

    Best regards
