Is your current Vista copy an oem or retail? I don't think an oem key can be used on more than one os. It s either 32 bit or 64 bit. Unless it is a retail key.

OEM keys work just fine. Take my laptop for example, a Dell. It came with Vista Home Premium 32 bit when I bought it over a year ago. A while later, I upgraded to 4GB of memory, and I called Dell and asked them about 64-bit Vista. They sent me a Vista Home Premium 64-bit disk, and the same license worked just fine.

If you're a student, you can get Windows 7 Home Premium in either 32 or 64 bit for $50 AUD.
