WELL if you are trying to INSTALL windows 64bit, it's pretty simple.
\015\012
\015\012You may or may not be required to format your hard drive for this, so be wary, BACKUP all your information that you want to keep onto dvds or another harddrive before doing this.
\015\012
\015\012Ok with that warning out of the way, the simplest way to do this is to simply either take out your hard drive and format it using another computer, or doing it on your computer by selecting my computer, right clicking on your C: and pressing format, and selecting quick format, and letting her rip.
\015\012
\015\012Now, ALL your data will be gone, because you are installing a new operating system. If you do not want to install just vista 64 (if you want to keep your old OS) then do not bother formating and just skip to this step.
\015\012
\015\012You want to load the DVD into the drive and reboot the computer.
\015\012Now you should be able to press a button F-something (like F2, F8 or F12) to allow you to choose what to boot from (you may have to go into the BIOS and tell it to boot from the DVD drive first, before the harddrive, which won't hurt your computer at all). Just simply select your dvd drive and windows vista should boot properly. If you don't see a startup screen right away, just try typing setup or windows and pressing enter. Follow the on-screen instruction, and you will have a brand new operating system, which is running on 64bits.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012BE SURE that your computer has a processor that is 64 bits before doing this, otherwise it will not work. Any software you use on vista 64 bit needs to be in 64 bit, just like how any software written for 32bit needs to be used on a 32 bit operating system. You can't usually install an Operating system...within an operating system, well, I've never done it personally.

\015\012Hope this helps, stay spicy and happy lappying! :)
Hi,
If you have a 32-bit version of Windows XP and want to install a 64-bit\015\012version of Windows Vista, you must boot the computer from the 64-bit\015\012Windows Vista DVD and then perform a custom installation of Windows\015\012Vista. Back up data before you start the custom installation.
