Installing windows vista problems

Specs: Windows Vista
got a uninstalled copy on one partition of windows vista 64 bit as a iso. Have vista 32 bit installed on another partition. I want to delete the partition with vista 32 bit on it. The problem is I have no DVD drive so i can't burn any CD's nor a flash drive big enough to hold vista on it. How can i reformat the partition then run the install from the other partition?

i guess if i even could install the new vista on the other blank partition that would be good too. when i run the setup on the iso it says its in the wrong format (i assume its a 64 bit program and my computer is in 32 bit...)

If you have a 32-bit system, you can't install a 64-bit OS.

Yup, you cannot install the 64-Bit version from within the 32-Bit environment. You are OOL here without a media to install the 64-Bit version from.

Fortunately, DVD burners are quite inexpensive these days.
