    The windows vista version that came with my sony vaio is Home Premium and I know the product key.
    Can I check somehow if it is 64bit?

    Yes, I just upgraded from RP and works fine, try burning a disc with the .iso image.

    brummyfan, thank you for the information, but I've read in another forum that my windows vista version that came pre-installed with my sony vaio, must be 64-bit, so that I can install windows 8 64bit.

    I am reading diverse opinions on what you can do.Some guys says that you can install from a previous windows 32bit version to a windows 8 64bit version at 29,99euros by manually download the iso.

    Yes, using upgrade assistant, I don't think that the vista version matters, as long as you have win 8 RP installed, the upgrade assistant will handle whether you had a previous version or not.
    EDIT: You'll be asked whether 1.you want to install now 2. create a media to install latter. 3. something else
    select the second option and after downloading burn the image to a disc using imgburn or something.

    So you say that the upgrade assistant didn't ask you for a previous windows 64bit product key? Did you installed the windows 8 64bit by the way, (because you don't mention it)?

    Yes, I have installed Win 8 64bit, Upgrade Assistant will check whether you had a licensed windows previously installed but it didn't ask me for the Vista product key.
