Is it possible to upgrade from a 32bit install of Windows Server 2008 to a 64bit version using the same product key? I'm needing to install 32GB of system RAM to support some software that is going on the server. Currently, it is maxed out at 4GB of RAM for the 32bit system. I know that in Windows 7, the 32bit key is the same as the 64bit version. Didn't know if this was the case on a server 2008 machine. Microsoft wouldn't give me an answer as it is an OEM install of the OS on a Dell Poweredge R710 in 2010. Also, is it a simple process to re-install as 64bit or will I be working on this for days? I'm new to Server installs. Thanks ahead for any and all replies.
