    You buy a 64bit OS and install that, wiping everything off your hard drive and starting from scratch.

    1. Buy 64bit OS
    2. Get into BIOS, change boot priority to set CD's above Hard drives
    3. Save settings and restart.
    4. Put in CD right then. I mean it, right then, before the computer starts back up.Or you could just already have the cd in...
    5. Follow the directions to install OS.

    There's one more important step.

    6. The very first time your computer restarts during the install process, get into the BIOS and set your HDD's boot priority higher than the CD-ROM drive, the way it originally was.

    If you don't follow that one, you'll be repeating the first part of the installation process in an infinite loop.

    ... umm... I make sure that HDD is NEVER the first in boot priority as soon as I get a computer. Makes troubleshooting easier, and it's really not a big deal to... oh god... pop the CD/Floppy/USBdrive out and reboot!


    To summarize... just take the boot CD out when it restarts.
