    Is it possible to go from windows 32 bit to windows vista 64 bit in a clean
    install or do i need to previously have windows xp 64 bit?

    You would have to boot with the 64 bit DVD. 64 bit setup cannot be started
    from the 32bit desktop.

    I got my 64bit vesion in the mail today (upgraded from 32bit home to 64bit
    home). However...no instructions on how to install! I tried from desktop,
    doesnt work, but botting from windows startup worked, BUT there's no CD key
    that came with it...so do I use the cd key I have for windows home 32?

    Yes the one key will work for either the 32bit or 64bit. Only one can be
    installed at a time. There is no in place upgrade path from 32bit to 64bit.
