    I tried to upgrade to Win 7 Ultimate 64bit but it said the disc is not compatible. I don't want to format the drive and install a fresh Windows on it because there are too much stuffs in there and the system is still fresh less than a year old.

    You cannot upgrade from a 32-bit to a 64-bit Windows OS. You will (unfortunately) be required to format and re-install the OS followed by your apps.

    Thanks for your reply! I guess I have to do a fresh install just too much to data to back up.
