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.
Mine is OEM but not of the hardware is OEM hardware anymore expect for 1 hard drive and the dvd rw drive other than that nothin maybe ill just go buy windows 7 might be easier.

Just curious, but what are planning to use that 8gb ram for?
If you're a student, you can get Windows 7 Home Premium in either 32 or 64 bit for $50 AUD.
Well the 8gb of ram will be used in wow i like to run lots of copies and i do alot of other things like dvd converting and was planing to disable my page file. The problem is im a high school student not uni or tafe so it may be harder.
Well, then talk to someone you know who is at uni, give them $50 cash and tell them what to do. =p
