  2. No. Installing a 64 bit version of Vista requires a clean install. Just make
    sure you back up your settings and files.

  4. You need to check with your computer manufacturer to see if 64-bit Windows
    is supported on your model (ie, drivers) - if it's not then you would be ill
    advised to install the 64-bit version. You also should check to see how to
    either create or obtain a restore disc set so you can reinstall Windows
    should it ever become necessary.

    How can HP give u a computer with 8 GB memory and not install a 64 bit
    os?? You should sue Hp for this!

    You can NEVER use greater than 4GB of memory unless you have 64 bit OS.
