Have you opened the package yet? how long ago did you install it? Windows 8 is out now so I don't know if you can still get Windows 7. If you live in USA ask someone at Best Buy.

Cross-architecture in-place upgrades (for example, x86 to x64) are not supported.

@Mamun+3, To change any Windows version from 32 to 64 bit requires a clean install. There are no supported other methods. The good news is that I've tested this to see if the product or CD KEY works in such an install (retail versions only) and it was all good news. There could be issues if the OS was an OEM version so my advice is to install a blank drive and test your install so you don't burn your bridges. That is, keep your current OS safe by not touching it.
