    There is no path to upgrade. It basically is backup -> reinstall -> restore files and settings.

    Is this what you were doing?

    hardware specs

    i have a macbook pro 13" unibody mid 2009 model a1278 and i have 8 gb memory on this model, this is equipped with an intel 64 bit processor, but i already have bootcamp installed with windows 7 pro 32 bit by accident. when i was trying to restore everything.

    also what's the fastest way to backup all your mac and windows partitions and reimage it quickly? i've been wondering about this for some time? need to upgrade from the 32 bit pro edition to the 64 bit ultimate edition
