Upgrade Ultimate 32-bit To 64-bit

How do i upgrade my windows 7 ultimate to 64-bits. Would i lose my files? Or requires me to reinstall microsoft office or other programs? I had a vista ultimate and i brought an oem windows 7 ultimate. I have successfully installed it without any loss of data or program. However, when using my hawaii e-180, it was causing so much problems and i discovered the incompatibility. I had a problem using hawaii e-180 which do not have a 32-bits driver. However, microsoft has a driver for it but it is 64-bits. Basically i want to upgrade to 64-bits since my laptop is capable and to use the 3g modem for my mobile internet.

Ultimate 64-bit Bsod

I have a self-built system. Evga mb with intel i7 (lastest bios updates installed). 12gb ram (mem tested ok), dual ati radeon (diamond) 4670 1gb video (crossfire currently disabled, latest drivers installed).

This is a recent install, upgraded from vista ultimate 64-bit. Sometimes it stays up for a while, other times only seconds after a restart. But i've been getting pretty constant bsod's for the last few weeks. I've been researching it trying to determine if all my drivers are up to date, and it appears that they are. I ran a memory test and that came out ok. This is becoming more and more frustrating.

After installing windows 7 ultimate (32 bit) . I used bitlocker to lock my hard disk (d) drive, which has data(size approx 100gb). While locking the drive it prompted me to enter the password and i entered the password. I still remember the password and have recovery key aswell saved on my desktop. What went wrong: while enabling the bitlocker i got a small window which was loading (encrypting). I waited for 10 mins and canceled it bcoz it was loading slowly after i did that when i tried to open my hard disk drive (d) using the password that i entered while the configuration of bitlocker i got error saying " the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error" . Then i tried forgot password option using recovery key but it didn't help. I have all my data in that drive which is encrypted. So please help me to recover my data.

Bsod Flash Drive Win 7 Ultimate 32-bit

I have just installed windows 7 ultimate on my desktop, upgrade from vista ultimate. When i insert one of my flash drives, i get a bsod. These flash drives work on my laptop(windows 7 64bit rtm 7100), a vista home premium desktop, and a win xp desktop. I have two other flash drives(pny 4gb, pny 512mb) that work. The two flash drives that don't work are(pny 8 gb, memorex 1 gb).

The problem started trying to transfer files from my laptop(win 7 64 bit) to my desktop(win 7 32 bit). These two drives worked the first time i plugged them in to my desktop. Is the 64 bit laptop causing the problems. I have re-formatted both flash drives in my vista computer.

Vista Upgrade To Win 7 Ultimate Won't Install

I am on my third attempt to upgrade vista ultimate to windows 7 ultimate. I get through most of the install process (transferring files, settings, and programs) and then it fails and says my system cannot be upgraded. The system advisor does not find any issues before i start the install. The upgrade takes nearly 2 hours to complete before it fails which seems unusual based on all the other install times i have read about. I purchased the windows 7 ultimate upgrade as it was the only upgrade option for windows vista ultimate. I realize i could do a clean install but i would prefer to do the upgrade. The software is sold as being able to do this.system specifications dell laptop gen 2, 320 gb hd (200gb free), 2 gig ram. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Win 7 Ultimate Upgrade From Vista Ultimate

Purchased windows 7 ultimate upgrade package since i have windows vista ultimate on my laptop. Purchased it online and after it was ordered, and before it was delivered, my @$*_$&_ hard drive failed. I cannot find the vista software that was preinstalled on the laptop now. Will the upgrade package work the same as a full installation? I really don't want to reinstall vista at all and then have to upgrade. Not to mention i don't want to tear my house apart looking for the vista disk if i don't need it.

Upgrade From Vista Home Premium 32-bit Failed Installation

I am attempting to upgrade from windows vista home premium 32-bit to windows 7 home premium 32-bit. I obtained this upgrade from a download, and my installation is failing.

At 21% of the way through the "expanding windows files" process, the installation quits with the following message:

"The upgrade was canceled. Any changes that were made to your computer during the upgrade process will not be saved. " And in a bow below that message: "setup can't continue. Your computer will now restart and your previous version of windows will be restored. "

No reason is given for the cancellation of the upgrade. I have, however, run the windows upgrade advisor, which has shown that my computer is fully compatible. All programs that it advised me to remove have been removed. I've also removed all external devices from my computer during the installation.

I fear i may have a corrupted installation file of some kind but am not sure of anything. I'd appreciate if anyone has any suggestions, or has been in this situation before and or knows what to do.

Cannot Install Updates

I have an hp pavilion slimline with windows 7. I am having trouble with windows installer. I am not in safe mode, i have administrative rights. The message says that windows installer is in safe mode or incorrectly installed. I cannot run certain updates and i cannot install itunes64 setup. The computer runs and works great except for the installer. I am unable to use or install windows cleanup utility, etc. Any suggestions or links to fix this problem?

I was on the phone with apple support for 2 hrs. To try to get working when i bought my iphone. They suggested several things and finally suggested contacting hp, which was a joke. I do not know where or who to contact at microsoft for help. I am not very savvy with computers.

Kb980408 Update Install Failed

Installed win7 pro on my hp desktop two days ago. Installed about 30 updates without issue but am getting hung up on one of them.

Kb980408 keeps failing. The error i get is: "windowsupdate_800b0100" "windowsupdate_dt000"

I downloaded the update and attempted a manual installation but that did not work either. I tried microsoft fixit and it did not resolve the issue even with aggressive mode. I've tried running the system update readiness tool but that didn't work for me. I've pasted the log at the end of this message if it's of any use.

The only antivirus i am running is microsoft security essentials.

Updates Wont Install

I keep getting an error code of 646, even though i shut off both my spysweeper firewall and my windows firewall. Not only that, but before when i could install the updates, my computer would freeze. Is this normal, and is there a solution? I asked other groups, and different people said different things. Some people claimed it was my registry that was causing the problems, and others said that i shouldn't "clean" my registry at all - that it would cause bigger problems. I used two registry cleaners - regcure and ccleaner. They helped with the freezing issues, but not with the 646 error.

I have 87. 9 gb of free space on my toshiba satellite l305-s5955. I have microsoft office, with word 2007. The "important" updates i need to install are as follows:

Security update for microsoft office excel 2007 (kb978382)
Security update for microsoft office visio viewer 2007 (kb973709)
Security update for microsoft office word 2007 (kb969604)
Security update for microsoft powerpoint 2007 (kb957789)
Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb969559)
Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb969613)
Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb972581)
Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb974234)
Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb978830)
Update for microsoft office infopath 2007 (kb976416)
Update for microsoft word 2007 (kb974561)

I put this question in windows vista section, but the system here put my question in the windows 7 section. The os i'm running is windows vista.

Using Key From 64-bit Install For 32-bit Version On Same Pc

Want to use key from 64 bit install for clean install of 32 bit version on same pc. I recently purchased windows 7 ultimate which included the 64 and 32 bit versions.

Error 25015 Failed To Install .net 2.0

Just purchased a kodak esc9 printer. Spent 4 hours yesterday on  chat, then phone with kodak customer service attempting to load software. Told me to call back today. This must be a windows problem. The .net 2. 0 software is on printer disk, tried from disk and later from win download site. No luck after many, many, attempts after making different changes. Recently installed hard drive in different pc, had to recover windows, not a pleasant experience. That took days. Grrrrr. Is this related?  Have auto update turned on and am up to date with win and anti-virus. Any suggestions?

Install Updates Code 646

I have been trying to install two updates for over a week now and so far no luck. The updates are kb978380 for office 2007 and kb978382 for excel 2007. Everytime i try to download them it creates a restore point and then acts as it should but then i get a error code 646 and i am told that it was not able to install the updates. Today i found a optional update listed and tried to install all three but it would only install the optional and code 646 for the other two. I am not any kind of an expert but will try to follow instructions because this needs to be fixed.

Same Updates Repeatedly Attempt To Install

So, my sound keeps cutting out. Every time it does i know microsoft has decided to install the same update. I go to the start menu and, of course, there the little exclamation point on the shield. I'll click it and it will log me out, begin shut down and installation. Its always an 8 part install. And i'm almost certain its the same "update" being "installed" over, and over, and over; although, it is windows, i could be wrong. Stranger things have happened.

How can i prevent this, or at least get a more useful update that i don't have to install several times/day and that will stop cutting off my sound. It's quite frustrating.

Unable To Install Ms Security Updates

I have windows vista home premium edition and microsoft office home/student 2007, installed on an hp computer. I use kaspersky anti-viral program, spybot, and malware to check for hazardous files. Recent scan with spybot revealed 7 instances of spyware and the program removed the files.

No other malicious files have been detected. Yet, i'm unable to install ms windows security updates. I even scanned my computer using the ms free scan program, nothing was detected. No viruses, no spyware, no malware. So what's the deal, why can't i install these updates?

Installer Has Been Corrupted After Failed To Install Office Update

My windows installer has been corrupted since a failed to install office update (kb981715). Now i cannot install adobe reader. I have vista home premium, 32 bit on my dell inspiron 518 (purchased march 2009) last, april (2010) i had a failed to install update (kb981715) for microsoft office  2007 and after many , many hours working with a microsoft tech support, i finally was told to just hide that update because my "windows works plus" didn't need this update.

However, i believe that this "failed to install update" removed part of the windows installer and i have been unable to get updates for adobe reader and after i uninstalled that software, i could not install that new download at all.microsoft support page will not accept my correct product id, so now i can't even get that help. What will happen if i try to download a new windows installer?
