    Win 10 wont activate after upgrade from Win 10(32 bit) to Win 10 (64 bit)

    The free upgrade offer for Windows 10 is a like for like offer. If your old OS was 32bit, that's the version of Windows 10 you'll get free. Likewise if your old OS was a Home version, that's the version of Win 10 you'll get free. If you had a pro version
    then WIn 10 will be pro too.

    If your games worked on Win 7 32bit they should work on win 10 32bit.
