Does your desktop have Vista Home Premium x64 on it? If Yes, then you should be able to perform an upgrade install of Vista Ultimate x64.

If No, then you will need to backup all pertinent data (Document, Music, etc.) to a different hard disk or DVD, then perform a clean install of Vista Ultimate x64. You cannot "upgrade" from a 32-Bit OS to a 64-Bit OS.

Sorry I don't have better news for you.... :(
