What is the procedure to get a Windows 7 pro 32 bit upgraded to Windows 7 pro 64 bit?
For Think systems, a customer could order 64bit recovery media from lenovo. The advantage to this vs installing from a regular Win 7 upgrade disk is that it properly creates the hidden partiotions and installs all the correct drivers and optimized image as if the system were originally ordered as a 64bit Lenovo Thinkpad.
For Idea systems, some recovery media may be available, but the OKR partition will not be updated so that if OKR is used, it will revert to the original 32 bit factory load. Both Think and Idea system customers could purchase or download Win 7 64 bit and apply as an upgrade, but will then need to download the applicable drivers and applets.
