    Yes, Windows Vista 32 bit is compatible for 86x processors and 64 but is compatible with 64x processors most likely you have an 86x processor see wikipedia [​IMG].

    Currently, I use 32bit Win 7, but I still want to upgrade up to 64 bit edition. But not sure it would work or not. What should I do for this? Thanks in advance.

    Find out if your processor is 64bit capable.
