Yes it can, however in most cases for the best overall performance I recommend installing a new OS from scratch. Scott.

sorry I meant to say if a computer that has windows viata basic install or home can it be that you could install windows 7 pro on them over them or a fully reinstall. With the hardware that came with the computer.

Hardware that supports Vista 64-bit should also support Win7 64-bit. However if one was using 32-bit Vista, then unless they also went to 32-bit Win7 all new drivers would be required for a 64-bit OS install. Older devices may not have 64-bit drivers available. Scott.
