I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit operating system, and I wanna install Windows 8 64 bit on it, can I do that?
It is not possible to change from 32 bit to 64 bit during an upgrade. You require either a standalone 64 bit version of W8 or a 64 bit legacy Windows OS.

thank you Guys, this is really amazing place at which you help others. thank you ALL.

If you meet the minimum
system requirements, then you can absolutely install Windows 8,
1 GHz or faster
1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
However, because of the driver differences between 32 and 64-bit
operating systems, upgrading is impossible. So a fresh installation is
These specs are pretty much the same as required by Windows 7.
If you have a computer that has a 64 bit processor (you probably will), all you have to do is erase your current installation, and install a 64 bit copy of Windows 7 over it.
If you have a dual core,you can install it.
64-bit version requires no doubt 64-bit processor and other devices to support it good,
like 2 GB RAM (64-bit), 20 GB available hard disk space, DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver, to run new Metro style apps screen resolution greater than 1024x768.
If you have a 64bit processor, then you can. Also make sure that you have the recommended minimum specs to run Windows 8 :) I would recommend doing a fresh install and not upgrade.
Is this £49 windows 8 64 bit version work on 32 bit windows 7 pc s? ,thank you .
Since Windows 8 is not ready fully,it's better to first take backup of your data to a separate drive and then Windows 8.You can't go back after installing it by simply removing it.
You must have a 64 bit processor... then u can install
To install 64bit OS you need a 64 bit processor
