Re: upgrade Vista premium to 64 bit.

That won't be an upgrade, but a clean install. And that, of course, is always possible But I'd go for Windows 7 in stead of Vista for your new OS.

And sufficient memory (ram) for the task is also advisable.

in fact,if you want to uapdate vista premiem to 64 bit,you should ensure your CPU is 64 bit first,and have enough memory space and system disk space.thus you can update it to 64 bit.but as what Kees_B said,it will be more perfect to update your OS to windows 7 64 bit if your computer are support it.
