I know it's probably not possible, unless someone is working on it. Is there a way to install Win7-64 over top Win7-32 ?

What about the option of having a complete Windows7-32 backup and then restoring that back up after installing Windows7-64 ?

that should work as the restore of the 32 bit backup would format hdd and reinstall ,64 bit shouldn't have any affect on the restore

I wonder if that would work, has anyone tried this ?

it has to work ,we load winxp recovery on laptops that have been upgraded tp all the time ,and nothing happens , the fact that one is 32bit and one 64 bit will not affect it ,in my opinion

Then this makes it a perfect solution if you are upgrading from x64 to x32 Windows. Although if you are changing the motherboard a fresh install is the only install :)
