Upgrading PC from 32 bit Vista to 64 bit Win 7 Ult

Does this require a fresh install or can it be an upgrade, do I need back up my media first?

fresh install

backup your data first

yes you can up grade or clean install - you choose. Always a good idea to make ups regularly anyway.

You cant upgrade from 32bit to 64bit as far as i am aware. .

oh true correct. 32 vs 64

Why do you need Ultimate, imho there's very little in it over home premium unless you want to join a domain or something, Ultimate upgrade costs around $499 from DSE whereas you'll get HP for heaps less than that? Just a thought anyway.
