Default I am trying to go from 32 bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7.

I am trying to go from 32 bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7.

The 32 bit Vista was installed by mistake. My system can handle a 64 bit OS. Now I have finally found the time to upgrade. But the 64 bit intallation DVD can't be read from my OS. Any Advice?

Do I need to boot from that DVD drive? Will that work?

You cannot upgrade from 32bit to 64bit. If your computer is x64 compatible, boot off of the Windows 7 media and re-install the OS. before you do so, make sure that you have copied your documents because the re-install will wipe out all of the existing files.
