The curse of 64-bitness strikes again

After installing Vista SP1 under Parallels on my new MacBook, I decided maybe it was not as bad as I thought before.  I have been learning more about Vista and found some things I like about it, for example the new Backup application writes the backup to VHD files, wow Microsoft made a great decision with that one!

So tonight I was wondering what my options were for upgrading from my current Windows XP Professional X64 installation to a 64-bit version of Windows Vista (Edition?).  I found a Microsoft KB article Installation choices for 64-bit consumer versions of Windows Vista which has my specific scenario “Installing a 64-bit version of Windows Vista on a computer that is running Windows XP Professional x64.”  I followed the link to the Vista Upgrade Advisor download page and after running the installation file I am presented with this message.

Sorry, the Upgrade Advisor does not support 64-bit editions of Windows XP or Windows Vista.
