Changing an OEM Vista Pre x86 to x64

I got a notebook with Vista Pre X86.
Is there any method to change it to x64 Vista and keeping it Genuine?

then you should ask in the notebook forum as the windows is running on your notebook
(or asking in human forum? as you're the user! )

anyway, there's no upgrade path from x86 to x64 (for both Windows 7 and Vista), what you can do is to use Windows Easy Transfer to backup your files and settings to do a clean install using x64 DVD with the same product key....and as long as you have a genuine+valid product key, your x64 copy will be validated as genuine after clean install.

I know(no x86 to x64) so that I am asking for a x64 Vista.
Do you mean I can simply download a x64 Vista and install it?
Thank you.

for retail channels, the disc should either be included or you can ask Microsoft for the x64 disc (with some postal+handling fees, of course)

oh.........thank you for your answer.
Maybe x64 is not really necessary for a notebook.
